In 1996 Canton Township began investigating the need for a performing arts center in their community. In 1998 the Partnership was formed with a focus on establishing a nonprofit organization to assist in raising funds for the performing arts center. Over the following 6 years we raised more than $5 million towards the construction of The Village Theater, a 400-seat premiere performing arts center. It opened to the public in 2004.
The theater is now home to several Western Wayne County performing arts organizations, including an orchestra, a band, a choral group, youth, adult, and senior drama theater, and more.
