The Time Has Come For A Dedicated Theater And Concert Venue


To The Editor:

I have reflected with great anticipation on the possibility of a dedicated Performing Arts Center in our community. Currently we face several challenges including the lack of an adequate venue that allows both local performing groups and outside programs to provide a variety of cultural experiences for our residents and guests. The Hempel Auditorium was built for recitals, not as a concert stage nor a theater. Ruesch is a lecture hall, not a theater. The Community Church of the Rockies and the Mountain View Bible Church are churches, not stages. We are grateful for their hospitality, but we need a multipurpose theater and concert venue in Estes Park.
