Stiefel Theatre for the Performing Arts

This theater opened in 1931 as the Fox Watson Theatre, and closed sometime in the 1990’s.

In 2001, supporters raised nearly $3 million to restore and renovate the old Fox Watson Theatre into a premiere performing arts center.

The theatre reopened on March 8, 2003.
