Over the last 25 years, the Center has embraced inclusion, community, and quality. By providing a welcoming and inclusive cultural space, the Center encourages authentic participation, promotes critical thinking, improves wellbeing, and offers a sense of belonging.
The Center plays a crucial role throughout community members? lives by introducing children to their first live cultural experiences often welcoming them back as artists, patrons, students, and volunteers. As well as provide opportunities for families to create lasting memories. But we don?t stop there. The Center aspires to deliver exceptional experiences for all. From programming to artists? and patrons? services, from a quality venue to professional production expertise.
