Spring For The Princess
March 19-June 19, 2024

Spring for the Princess!  In lieu of a large gathering on a single date, the Theatre invites members of the community to host individual dinners at any time during the Spring season (March 19, 2024, to June 19, 2024) to raise donations for this historic, nonprofit performing arts center. The goal is to raise $1,000 per dinner party.

Since we all love a little friendly competition, our hosts’ creativity could be award-winning. Every Spring for the Princess event host will be entered into the Marquee Award Competition, our GRAMMY-inspired evening of celebration. Judges will vote based on a criteria: including creativity of the theme/décor, activity, invitation, menu (if applicable), and amount raised. The top three winners will receive The Standing Ovation, Encore, and Bravo award, respectively, which will be given out at the formal Marquee Awards ceremony set for Saturday, July 20, 2024. The Marquee Award is an original work created by a local artist specific to this event.

"This is a great old theatre. Reminded me of times past. I was here due to an auction, but was able to walk through the entire place. This place would be a great place just to visit and if you have a reason to go to it, go. Walk around and explore."

"It was a lovely, loving, lively event filled with kind people, delicious food, and good music at a great venue. Really enjoyed all the roaring 20s attire in honor of the 100 year anniversary of the theater."
