In one American city after another, one of the greatest drivers of downtown revitalization is the restoration of its beloved historic theater. The League of Historic American Theatres (LHAT), working with Americans for the Arts, has calculated the total economic impact of a downtown historic theater in cities the size of Topeka to be $1,400,000 annually.



The Jayhawk will present a creative mix of live music, performances and films, and feature a variety of interactive and educational experiences.


The Jayhawk is already a popular rental venue, regularly hosting: Weddings • Corporate & Legislative Receptions • Holiday, Birthday & Graduation Parties • Class Reunions • Special Events...and more!


“Let’s see what’s happening at the Jayhawk!” will once again become a rallying cry for the people of Topeka and surrounding communities.
