THANK YOU, DEAR SPONSORS
What began as a dream to provide a new theatre experience in the Benton Harbor Arts District quickly became reality when we opened our doors in 2019. While countless caring individuals worked hard to get us off the ground, we couldn’t be more grateful to the generosity of these corporate donors who have supported us from the beginning.
We hope our community appreciates these community leaders as much
as we do by supporting their businesses in ways big and small.
