An expansion at the Center of Creative Arts will include a new, larger theater, a parking garage and renovations to the existing space, originally a synagogue. The plans, along with a $40 million fundraising campaign, were announced Friday night at COCA’s anniversary gala for donors, who already have contributed more than $25 million to the effort.

“We’re only 30 years old, and the organization has really built a community of believers around the mission,” said Kelly Pollock, COCA’s executive director. “They have literally seen kids grow up before their eyes.”
