With Wyeth and GWG Architects spearheading bringing the restoration to fruition, the historic Stony Creek Theatre is on its final fundraising kick to get the theater to open doors by next summer! Hosted by CBS lead weather man and former All My Children star Lonnie Quinn "Come to the Ball" is a red-carpet, black tie optional event featuring international ballroom champions Charlie and Emily Roberts, who will entertain as well as instruct the audience before an open dance evening in all styles of song. Complete with cabaret crooning by Legacy co-founders, reception, photos, dinner, and silent and live auctions, this celebration/ fundraiser will be one for the books!

*The Legacy Theatre was established in June 2011 to create a professional resident repertory theater and theatrical training, to bring Broadway talent to the Shoreline for residencies and workshops, and to advance the process of restoring an historic facility for our community. In March 2013, Legacy succeeded in purchasing the historic Stony Creek Puppet House theater, marking this the third time in its 150-year history to change hands. The Stony Creek Puppet House was in immediate danger of being destroyed or repurposed and Legacy was fortunate to “arrive on the scene” at the right time. Since its purchase, professionals have been working steadily to obtain approvals and are now finalizing designs to outfit this historic building with a gorgeous theatre, fit to reflect its heritage as well as the vision The Legacy maintains- to be a premier Arts house for Legacy’s professional theater company and visiting artists from the Broadway community, and to ensure ongoing seasons of uplifting, inspiring, and challenging professional theatre and theatre training for all.
