Housed in a 100-year old building this facility is the culmination of dreams, a lot of hard and impassioned work, driven by the desire to share the magic of music with all who come. After a complete restoration and additional touches like re-sawing century-old wood to make the stage floor and bar top, the theater has been brought back to  status as a place to enjoy the arts in the downtown area.
