This nonprofit amateur community theater is one of the oldest continually running community theaters in the United States. Its mission is to promote and sustain the legitimate theater as permanent art form in our community, by providing creative outlets to volunteer performers, designers, directors, playwrights and technicians. We aim to make artistic experiences available to the public both through productions and joint ventures with other arts-oriented groups.
