Our Project

Where dreams come to life

Concept

The Zephyr Theatre will be a professional theatre providing live performances, music, dance, education, and artistic opportunities for all ages.

Created from the old Zephyr Train Depot in Stillwater, The Zephyr Theatre will provide the following:

  • 330-seat Theatre and Performance Space with Professional Stage, Lighting, and Sound Technology
  • Stunning Lobby
  • Large Meeting Hall/Rehearsal Space
  • Dance Rehearsal Studio
  • Exquisite Bakery
  • Scene, Costume, and Prop Shops

It will benefit the community by:

  • Providing a regional professional theatre on the east side of the Twin Cities and western Wisconsin
  • Further establishing the St. Croix Valley as a cultural center and destination
  • Increasing tourism and bringing more people to existing downtown businesses year-round
  • Contributing to a greater Stillwater Main Street
  • Offering a space/stage option for other performance groups in the area
  • Creating a place for meetings, lectures, and gatherings for public or private events
  • Holding classes and workshops in performance and art benefiting all ages
  • Commissioning local artists, composers, performers, and playwrights

The theatre will produce at least six productions of its own each year, as well as offer occasional music concerts, dance performances, and touring productions. The theatre will also be known for the exquisite desserts served at intermission. With your help in our capital campaign, our projected opening will be Fall, 2018.
