In December 2013, the Williamston Theatre closed on a refinanced three-year Line of Credit with Opportunity Resource Fund. This is the second time OppFund has partnered with the Williamston Theatre; the first time was a Line of Credit to help the Theatre get through the economic crisis of 2007-2008. The Theatre survived and is thriving today.

About the Williamston Theatre

The Williamston Theatre’s mission is to produce professional theatre that excites and engages their audiences while challenging us all to explore our lives. This mission statement is supported by the following objectives: to be an integral part of the cultural fabric of Michigan; to pursue innovative collaboration in every aspect of our work; to establish a home for Midwest artists; to engage audiences of diverse ages, cultures and economic backgrounds.  

The Williamston Theatre was founded in 2004 by four theatre professionals who desired to create theatre for, by and about people in this part of the world. In 2008, Tony Caselli, John Lepard, Christine Purchis and Emily Sutton-Smith received the prestigious Robert Busby Award from the Lansing State Journal for extraordinary overall contributions to theatre in the Greater Lansing area.
