Then we will launch a capital campaign for full RESTORATION of the building.  Our goal is tol transform the Alger into a regional DESTINATION for arts and culture and to serve as an anchor for stabilization of our neighborhood & commercial corridor.


Halloween 2014

Thanks to all our Friends for sharing your Halloween evening with us! Big thanks to Nate Bonkowski and Cook’s Crossing for super food. Gallons of love to Dan Scarsella and Motor City Brewing Works for tasty Oktoberfest brew and Pumpkin Ale. It was great to see some new faces at the theater and raise more $$ to get the theater opened.
