The power of the stage to unite knows no boundaries. Whatever our backgrounds, whatever our circumstances, we all have the capacity to feel a sense of wonder, to be dazzled by the sights and sounds, to love, to laugh, and to cry. Live performance draws out these emotions, and when we feel them, we feel them together.
Right now, our stages are dark. As much as we’d like to be here, together, sharing the joy of experiencing live performing arts, we’re stuck in a temporary intermission. But the lights will come back on, the arts will return, and we can all ensure that curtain rises again soon, together.
Our Raise the Curtain campaign will ensure that when we do welcome our community back through our doors, the light that performing arts shines upon our community is as bright as it has ever been.
MARCUS CENTER STATEMENT ON RACIAL INJUSTICE
As a nonprofit whose mission is to connect our community, we cannot be silent in the face of injustice.
We stand in solidarity with all those who are grieving the countless injustices that have plagued us for generations. We mourn the loss of innocent black lives. And we pledge to continue to lift up the voices of our BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) neighbors and unite together to realize a better future for us all. Continue to use your voice, your art, and your strength to take action and advocate for change.
We grieve with you, we love you, and we hope to be a place to heal when the time comes.
May justice and change be on the horizon.
The Marcus Center Team
