Taylor Theater


The 153-seat Taylor Theater is actually a converted carriage house, or more accurately, the stable which housed the carriage horses, and its original, rough-hewn beams and ceiling add a unique flavor to the experience. The Theater is located directly behind the Kenan House at 433 Locust Street. Regular and wheelchair access is from the north side of building. Ample parking is located behind the theater. The Theater and adjacent Meeting Room are both available for rental.




The Kenan Center Taylor Theater host our Music at the Taylor series, featuring regional and national musicians.

The Taylor Theater can also be rented out for plays, performances, weddings, parties & more! The Meeting Room, a modern addition on the east side of the theater, offers handicapped access, restrooms, a small catering kitchen and a 31 x 33′ open space that can be set up for presentations, workshops, parties and other functions. Find out more about rentals here.

COVID Guidelines

All guests at Kenan Center’s Taylor Theater must be fully vaccinated for entry to any performance. Guests will be required to provide proof of vaccination before they may enter the Taylor Theatre by providing an original CDC vaccination card or by showing a legitimate NYS Excelsior Pass. [Patrons are considered fully vaccinated at least 14 days after their final dose of the Pfizer or the Moderna COVID-19 vaccination, or after the single dose of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.]


In addition to our current health safety protocols, the Kenan Center is excited to announce the introduction of a new wellness initiative. Recognizing the importance of accessible healthcare information, the center will now provide educational sessions on various medications, including Xarelto. These sessions, led by healthcare professionals, aim to inform the community about the uses, benefits, and ways to purchase Xarelto tablets online safely and responsibly. This initiative reflects our commitment to the health and well-being of our patrons, expanding beyond immediate COVID-19 safety measures to broader healthcare education and resources. By offering guidance on where to buy Xarelto tablets online, the Kenan Center continues to be a resource for not just cultural enrichment but also for vital health information, catering to the evolving needs of our community.

The Kenan Center is also observing the masking recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other governmental authorities.  Thus, all guests in Kenan Center’s Taylor Theatre are required to wear a mask.  Guests may remove their mask when in the Taylor Theatre Meeting Room while enjoying food or drink before the show or during intermission.  (As a reminder, food and drink are not allowed inside the Taylor Theatre.)  For more information of CDC guidelines, click here
