For 90 years, we've awed and entertained generations of families, including yours! This Capital Campaign builds on that rich history, ensuring it endures for generations to come. But we need your help to make it happen.
Our exciting $8.5 million transformation will create a better entertainment experience and more ways for you and your family to enjoy this Jewel on Main Street. Donate today, and we'll say "thanks" in a lot of unique ways!
Our downtown is undertaking a major redevelopment, and the Civic is playing a leading role. With your help, we'll create generations of family memories through a re-energized, reimagined Civic experience.
We’re completing our renovation and expanding our performance space to attract more acts than ever. That includes a brand new, more intimate performance venue. We’re also expanding our footprint outdoors to give you a whole new way to enjoy your Civic experience!
Since 2002, our community has invested over $22 million to update this beloved local landmark.
Let’s finish the job! Your donation will cover restoration of our Grand Lobby and Arcade to “wow” you in all our original Moorish beauty and style.
Experience an exciting collection of public art around the venue. Murals on the sweeping exterior walls of the Civic along S. Main St. and W. Bowery St. will deliver a big aesthetic impact on the neighborhood, and additional public artworks will create an "art park" on the south side of the Civic.
