Gundlach Theatre

History of Gundlach​

The George P. Gundlach Theatre was added to Heidelberg’s campus in the year 1975 along with renovations to Founders Hall to turn the dormitory rooms into classrooms, offices, wardrobes and dressing rooms, and more in celebration of the 125th Anniversary. Though the entire cost was estimated to cost around $700,000 the majority of the cost was covered by George P. Gundlach who became the theatre’s namesake. George P. Gundlach hoped that the performing arts center would serve as a way to bring Heidelberg and the Tiffin community together through civic and cultural projects in a spirit of learning and exploration.

“Then there comes the time also when one must think of ‘foods for the mind’ in the enjoyment of finer things of life, such as art and entertainment, whether it be music or the performing arts.” - George P. Gundlach
