The Harvard Crimson

After announcing plans for major renovations of the Hasty Pudding building last spring, College officials continue to search for a donor to finance the much-delayed, multimillion dollar project. Although an overhaul of the Holyoke Street building—which has housed the Hasty Pudding Theatricals’ annual productions since its construction in 1888—was originally slated to begin in May 2002, it has since been pushed back to 2005. The College purchased the dilapidated structure from the Hasty Pudding Theatricals in 2000. “We hope to start renovations in the spring 2005, following the Pudding show,” said Alan P. Symonds ’69, technical director and adviser for College Theatre Programs.

Like the source of the project’s funding, the College has yet to determine which student groups will use the refurbished space. The Pudding building will continue to house its current residents—including the a cappella groups the Harvard Krokodiloes and the Radcliffe Pitches and the Theatricals
—and will likely offer office, rehearsal and performance space to a wider student community than ever before.
