Hosted by Hot in Topeka Burlesque, this show is the second annual fundraiser for the historic Jayhawk Theatre in downtown Topeka.
Originally opened in 1926, the Jayhawk Theatre is a historic and architectural marvel of early vaudeville theatres and jazz-era movie palaces. The goal is not only to restore this treasure to its former grandeur because of its historical significance, but also to breathe new life and purpose into the Jayhawk by renovating it into a state-of-the-art live entertainment venue and film house. As has been true in a number of other American cities, the Jayhawk will play a significant role in the continued revitalization of Topeka’s downtown. We’re convinced that the support exists to transform the Jayhawk into a vibrant entertainment venue contributing to economic development and quality of life. It will take imagination and dedication, but it can be done. The time is now. The wait is over. #SaveTheJayhawk
