Finke Theatre Building Expansion Project

Hello! We would like to share an exciting and transformative initiative that we believe will have a profound impact on both our beloved Finke Theatre and our community as a whole. We are embarking on a campaign to expand the Finke Theatre by building a new facility that will be connected to the existing stage area. I wanted to take a moment to explain the significance of this project and how your support can help us achieve our vision.
The Finke Theatre has been a cherished cultural hub in our community for many years, providing entertainment, inspiration, and a sense of belonging to countless individuals. However, as our theatre's popularity and demand for our programs have grown, we find ourselves in need of additional space to fully realize our potential. The expansion we are proposing will bring essential facilities under one roof, including rehearsal spaces, set building areas, prop storage, a costume room, a board/meeting room, and dressing rooms.

Why is this expansion so important?
Enhancing Performances: The new facilities will significantly enhance the quality of our productions. With dedicated spaces for rehearsals, set creation, and prop storage, our creative teams will have the resources they need to craft exceptional performances that captivate and inspire audiences.
Empowering Education: Our commitment to education will be amplified by this expansion. With new rehearsal spaces and resources, we can offer more comprehensive workshops, classes, and training programs for aspiring artists of all ages, nurturing the next generation of performers, designers, and technicians.
Community Connection: The new space will become a hub for community engagement, allowing us to host more events, workshops, and gatherings. This expansion isn't just about a physical building; it's about fostering connections and creating shared experiences that bring us closer together.
Social Impact: The arts have the unique ability to bridge divides and promote understanding. With the expanded Finke Theatre, we will have even more opportunities to collaborate with community organizations, schools, and local artists, contributing to the cultural enrichment and social well-being of our area.
