To our valued patrons,

The Sauk (Hillsdale Community Theatre) is in the middle of one of our most ambitious seasons to date. We opened the season with the hilarious Escanaba in da Moonlight. An opening night snow storm was not enough to dampen the fun. The show became a near sell-out smash. We just recently closed our second production of the season, Marvin’s Room. This beautiful production continued our commitment to contemporary, lesser-known shows in our Sauk Seconds season. We now have Sauk Shorts and Annie in rehearsal. Both have large casts and promise to be outstanding productions. We are excited to announce a change to our 2018 season. Due to a change in licensing restrictions, we will no longer be presenting Cheaper By The Dozen in December. We are very excited to say The Sauk was granted the rights to produce A Christmas Story. We are honored to be one of only a few theatres in the United States to be granted permission to perform A Christmas Story in 2018.

We have also continued to make improvements to the Sauk Theatre. In addition to electrical work inside the building, we recently replaced several 80-year-old windows in our costume storage area. Later this summer, we hope to replace seven metal doors that are over 40-years-old. Replacing these doors will not only help conserve energy, but provide improved security and safety for our building, our volunteers and our patrons.

We are able to provide this quality entertainment and improve our facility because of the generosity of our community. Like most theatrical organizations, your ticket dollars pay for less than half the cost needed to maintain the theatre and put on our productions. We rely on generous donors to make The Sauk possible. Our 2018 donor list continues to grow. We hope you will choose to be a part of our theatre family. All donations are tax deductible. Our various donor levels can be found below. 

If you have already given this year, we say thank you. Our 67 year history of providing quality theatrical experiences is a testament to the unending support we receive from our community. Thank you for believing in the importance of The Sauk and the arts in Hillsdale County.
