The North Carolina Black Repertory Company was one of several groups to move from The Arts Council Theatre this week to a new home downtown.

The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County, The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem and  the Black Rep all moved into a temporary location at the Winston-Salem Journal Building, . They’re expected to move to a nearby building owned by the Arts Council at 419 Spruce Street when the offices and rehearsal space there are finished. The Black Rep will perform at various places around the city with plans to mainly use Hanesbrands Theatre and hold “Black Nativity” at Wake Forest University.

The Arts Council sold its theater, located on Coliseum Drive, to Harvest Bible Chapel, which plans to start holding services there Sept. 9. The church has been holding its services at Thomas Jefferson Middle School for 14 years.
