The Thornton Wilder Center for the Arts organization aims to build a multi-purpose arts facility, to serve as a performing arts center, instructional space, and regional arts venue for the nine towns of the ConVal school district. With 400 retractable seats, the flex-space theatre will support arts education, community arts programs, and visiting performers. The center will expand cultural possibilities and encourage collaborations across genres.
WHY DOES THIS MATTER?
A HUB FOR THE ARTS
A performing arts center offers a place for making connections and sharing creative experiences.
The facility will offer a venue that does not exist for the regional high school or the community.
WHAT IS OUR COMMUNITY SAYING?
“My father, Richard E. Amidon, was on the building committee for ConVal. He told me several times that the intention was always that the amphitheatre space would eventually be the site for an auditorium.”- Marcia Amidon Lusted, ConVal Class of 1980
