DSGW Architect Rendering of the new Hanifl Performing Arts Center

Ready. Set. Build!


We are thrilled to be building the Hanifl Performing Arts Center, future home of Lakeshore Players Theatre and Children’s Performing Arts. The space will feature a 250-seat Main Hall, 60-seat Black Box Learning Lab, rehearsal space, beautiful and accessible lobby, restrooms, and a community meeting room. Look to Lakeshore Players Theatre as your destination for theatre, music, film, dance, art, rentals, and more. Groundbreaking began in June and construction is expected to be complete by Spring 2018.

Donate and double your impact with a $1 million match

Part of the Hanifl Foundation gift is a match challenge. All future gifts to the campaign will be matched up to $1 million. To date, $750,000 has been received towards the match, and over $8 million has been raised for the entire project. Help us finish the project with a bang!

“John and I are proud to have made a gift to the Lakeshore Players Theatre Light The Stage! Capital Campaign. I encourage everyone in our community to make a generous gift to this cause to ensure the performing arts continue to thrive in the northeast metro for generations to come.”
