Dear Main Street Youth Theatre Friends and Supporters,
As many of you know, during our 20+ year history we called many locations “home.” From our start at Dunnagan’s Alley to Main Street to New Orleans Road to Seahawk Cultural Center, we have always managed to adapt and accept the challenges we encountered along the way. Our dedication to our area youth is what has been the inspiration to carry this mission forward.
About two years ago, we were presented with the conceptual idea of a performing arts center in the heart of Bluffton. As we stood at the bottom of the mountain looking up, the goal appeared seemingly unattainable but we remained hopeful that we could take one step at a time toward making this dream a reality. And now, here we are.
The Live Oak Performing Arts Center will provide the Main Street Youth Theatre with a home for the next 30 years and beyond. However, the greater purpose of this facility is to serve our entire surrounding community. It will be available to vocal groups, dance troupes, school presentations, adult theatre groups, regional acts, music concerts… it will truly reflect the artistic heartbeat of Bluffton. ONE HOME… for all of us.
We cannot do this alone… by coming together as a community, we can build this new “home” for all to enjoy. Please consider giving… no matter how big or small, every dollar helps us get closer to when we sit in our new theatre and celebrate what we have all built collectively.
If you can dream it ~ if you can see it ~ We can build it.
Here’s to a beautiful bright future for the arts in the Lowcountry… thank you for being a part of it.
Chairman of the Board, Main Street Youth Theatre
