Main Theater ca. 1915

 

Main Theater Working Group

The Renaissance Project has initiated a working group to facilitate exploring options for the renovation and repurposing of our historic theater, the Main.  This group is a collaborative effort between the city of Mt. Healthy, which owns the theater building, members of the Renaissance Project,  and others as we discover skills needed in the process. Members of the group have visited four local theaters as well as one out of state to learn what has worked and what hasn’t.  Our goal is to help the city, which recently purchased the building from the Port Authority, to make choices for the theater that are best for our community.

If you have skills that could well serve this project (architect, attorney, fundraiser, community organizer, structural engineer, theater person, publicist…) and would like to join us, please contact the Renaissance Project!
