The Triad Theater seems to be leaving the historic Wolf Building:
On Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2019, Yelm Council member Terry Kaminski reported to the mayor pro tem, city council and the public that The Triad Theater’s lease in the Wolf Building ends in November and she hoped they find a new home in Yelm citing, “It would be horrible if we could not have our live theater.”

Requesting a comment, I reached out last week to The Triad Theater’s director and city council Position 2 candidate Cameron “Calamity” Jayne [her name as listed in the Thurston County Voter’s Pamphlet]. To date she has not replied, though has responded on her candidacy issues.
Wolf Building owner, Steve Craig, confirmed to the Yelm Community Blog that he received a letter in early September from theater director Cameron Jayne that said the Wolf Building lease would not be renewed at the end of November 2019, and The Triad would be vacating the premises.
I also contacted the Standing Room Only (SRO) Theater Company who has an agreement with The Triad to have their performances in the building. SRO’s Daniel Wyman promptly responded this statement, “We are incredibly grateful to the Triad Theater for the support we have received over the last few years. Our next full-length production is Calendar Girls in March of 2020, and we are fully committed to producing it–along with many after–regardless of the venue in which we perform, so we hope our audiences will rest assured that the show absolutely will go on.”
The Yelm Community Blog looks forward to the show going on with Yelm’s live community theater robustly continuing into the future.
