Please join us in deep sorrow for our neighbors, who lost their young daughter to COVID-19.
May we all find solace for our grief and fortitude to endure the many challenges and injustices of this pandemic.

 Friends of the Alger Theater is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization. Our mission is to enrich our neighborhood by ACTIVATING and RESTORING our historic theater to create a welcoming DESTINATION for programs created BY and FOR our neighbors.


Plug in to the planning process for the city's East Warren/Cadieux Neighborhood Plan.


Tune in Wednesdays from 12:30pm to 1:30pm for virtual office hours with the project team. More information is available on Facebook, and at the project website.

Stay Informed. Stay Engaged.
