IMPORTANT NOTE: The visual arts project is a labor of love by our Executive Producer Dana Schultes, who selects and programs work on top of leading our organization. Our business is theatre, but we believe that since we have the ability and the venue necessary to help lift up local visual artists, we should do so. And we love being able to support local artists!
That being said, please note that our theatre and cafe customers are our first order if business. We cannot make arrangements for special viewings during the 1.5 hours prior to each show that we offer dinner service. Artist receptions are held at the show opening following performances or on non-show nights at the discretion of cafe and theatre management. We do our best to make everyone’s vision a reality. When special requests are made, we will do our best to make it happen. However, compromise and understanding are key. In other words, we are in the business of drama, but we prefer to keep it on the stage where it belongs.
We love our local arts community and are honored and humbled to have the space to be able to feature their wonderful work. Thank you for all you contribute to our region.
best, Marketing Director Jen
