Our Objectives

Repair damage from years of neglect

Damages and disrepair have left the this once beautiful and functional performance space unsafe and unusable. Our initiative, which will combine private and public funding, will repair the structural damages and restore the auditorium to its full potential.


Build a state of the art venue

Through this project we will restore the auditorium theatre’s classical style architecture and install improvements to the backstage space, seating arrangement, and sound and lighting equipment to reflect the latest advancements in theatre design.


share the arts with the community

Our ultimate vision is to create a space where the arts can thrive. The auditorium will once again be home to Hope High School performing arts education, as well as a sought after venue for youth and community arts groups, educational presentations, and community functions.
