In May 2011, The Gem Theater suffered a fire in its upstairs costume shop.
The fire came just before One More Productions' highly anticipated opening of "Chicago." Local theater companies came to the aid of One More Productions by frantically sewing costumes to help keep the show going. In the days immediately following the fire, One More Productions relocated next door to the Festival Amphitheater and was able to put the show on for two weeks. While the overall damages to the historical theater are repairable, the temporary closure of The Gem is a difficult loss for the arts community in Garden Grove.
The good news is that The Gem Theater is in the process of being re-built. A new roof has been installed, and the interior of the building will be remodeled. The arduous process will take months, but in the end, The Gem will be fully restored and ready to bring theater arts back to the community.
