Please join us for the Annual Community Play on June 27, 28 and 29.  Our talented local players look forward to performing for you!  This year we will present the two-act comedy, “An Impeccable Larceny” for your enjoyment.

We hope you will either tryout to be a part of the show, volunteer to help behind the scenes or simply enjoy the performance from your comfortable seat in our beautiful Finke Theatre. Many hours of work goes into each production but all agree that the efforts are well worth it as we hear the audience laugh and clap when entertained by uninhibited friends and neighbors!

From Rags to Riches

To truly appreciate the beauty of the Finke Theatre, one must know how far it has come since California Progress, Inc. first began the renovation process. Dedicated volunteers spent innumerable hours to facilitate the remarkable transformation.  To stay true to the era and history of the theatre, efforts were made to reclaim as much of the original hardware and fixtures as possible. Now the beautiful Finke Theatre has refinished original floors, reclaimed and re-upholstered seats with original aisle floor lighting, extraordinary painted wall detail with original art deco sconces, an expanded stage wired for sound and light, the lobby features a wood and textured glass ticket booth. For more pictures, see our Renovation Gallery.
