As Michigan’s oldest continuously operating theater, we proudly embrace our longstanding tradition of high-quality programming and education. Over the past few years, we have experienced exciting growth and we’re glad to say that we are continually raising the bar for theater in southeast Michigan.

Now, as stewards of this community gem, we must ask: What’s next? And how will we secure the legacy of the Croswell for future generations?

As we approach our 150th anniversary, we hope you will join us as we embark on our ambitious goal of raising $6.2 million to enhance this beautiful building and build a strong foundation for the future. This campaign reflects our commitment to improving education, supporting the revitalization of downtown Adrian, and enhancing the performing arts in our region.

The restoration and enhancement of the Croswell will provide financial sustainability and long-term economic growth. By preserving the past, we will build the future audiences of the performing arts for all of northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan. Please join us in building a stronger future for the Croswell and making a lasting impact on our community.
