Presser Performing Arts Center (PPAC) is delighted to announce the groundbreaking of its new 9,200 square foot addition that will feature a new state-of-the-art black-box multipurpose theater space, scene shop, music studio/classroom, a new art studio/classroom, expanded lobby, new restrooms, art gallery, kitchen, offices, additional parking and concession area.

Many local organizations, foundations, businesses and individual donors have played a role in raising the funds necessary to meet the goal of $3.5 million.

Twenty-nine years ago in July 1987 the original Presser Hall Restoration Society was formed to preserve the historic structure. One of the dreams of the original board of directors was to renovate the building and give it back to the community for the arts.

Today that dream is coming true. It is a culmination of 57 board members through the years, community meetings, round table discussions and over 100 artists expressing their needs and desires for the arts in our region.

“Today we deliver to the public one of many dreams imagined for our creative community,” said Lois Brace, Executive/Artistic Director. Don Decker, Campaign Co-Chair and Finance Officer stated, “This is truly an important time for our community and our region. We are making a lasting investment to provide the very best for our patrons and participants. The board of directors believe that it will become an anchor in the community, offering new programs for infant/toddlers and senior citizens.” Designed with access in mind, the new expansion and new space offers one story for all its public spaces to increase community engagement and serve a greater number of participants in the region who lack convenient, affordable access to the arts and entertainment.

Presser Performing Arts Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization. The anticipated completion date is Dec of 2017.
