Our Architectural Treasure

The Sturges-Young Center for the Arts provides a historically remarkable venue for performances that will engage and delight your audience! As with all great places, the beauty is in the details. Our 969-seat proscenium auditorium features mid-century modern design elements that have earned this facility a place on the list of Michigan Historical Places. Designed to showcase the performers who grace its stage, the auditorium offers full sound and stage lighting systems, cinematic projection, and a 28’ screen. The stage area is perfect for plays, lectures, film screenings, and corporate presentations, and offers 3 onstage dressing rooms, as well as ample loading room for sets and equipment.
