With your support, we have just concluded a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $70,000 from nearly 600 backers to help us open our ground floor facilities. Our main stage venue, the 160-seat Lucas Hicks Theater, will open for its first performances in May 2018!
We still have a lot of work ahead of us — your gift will help us continue construction and programming at the new arts center: donate today to help create a new home for locally-created performing arts in Whatcom County!
