Enter Stage Right, a local nonprofit community based theatre established in 2008 is working in partnership with Port Huron Citadel LLC to bring a black box performance venue to downtown Port Huron. The Citadel Stage, set to open in 2016, will be professional quality, accessible and affordable, with the transforming ability to fit multiple event and performance needs. During the day, community, youth, and education based programs may call the Citadel home. By night the stage can help charge the downtown atmosphere with the lively experience brought by the performing arts. According to Regina Spain, Executive Director of Enter Stage Right, “The Citadel Stage will offer new possibilities for community, youth, and educational programs. Our goal for the Citadel Stage is to collaborate with the other local venues, artists, organizations and businesses to ensure downtown Port Huron as an entertainment destination for residents and travelers alike.” Also instrumental in bringing the project together has been the Economic Development Alliance of St. Clair County. David Haynes of the EDA described the project, “This is another example of the continued growth in the downtown, especially in bringing evening entertainment on top of our many restaurants.” For more information or to support the Citadel Stage, visit www.thecitadelstage.org, gofundme.com/The-Citadel-Stage , or ‘like’ us on Facebook.
