The Hillsdale Community Theater players moved into the former Civic Theater building (also known as the Civic Hall in its later years) in 1972 after nearly a decade of being located in a building at the Hillsdale County Fairgrounds. The Civic was renamed the Sauk Theater in 1975.

The Hillsdale Community Theater presents live theatrical presentations at the Sauk throughout the year.

The Civic Theatre replaced the Jonesville Theatre after it burned in 1932. The project by Alfred Lane who owned the original theater didn’t launch until 1935 likely due to the economic conditions during the Depression. The Civic ran continuously to 1959 closing briefly that February due to lack of patronage. The theatre is then taken on by two different owners who likely try to complete the leasing period ending its theatrical film days on December 31, 1964 timing out with a 30-year lease. The final film appears to be “How the West Was Won.” The Civic is taken on in 1972 for live stage shows retaining its name initially and then later renamed.
