Originally formed to oversee the restoration of this historic theatre and to develop the theatre as a multi-purpose performance arts facility, the theatre also strives to promote programming that serves people of all ages, with & without disabilities; reflects the ethnic & cultural diversity of its audiences, and serves as an informational resource.
