Theatre at Its Finest
Theatre is about connections, experiences, storytelling, self-discovery, laughter, joy, tears, empathy, and togetherness. We promote the expressions of ideas, foster creativity and embrace the acceptance of others. We believe inclusivity is vital for a vibrant arts community. You can experience theatre as an audience member, participant, donor, volunteer, or student. This fall marks the Chippewa Valley Theatre Guild’s 40th Anniversary serving the community! And our Grand Theatre celebrates 15 years as a place to entertain, educate and experience quality theatre.
See the Movie Vagabond
nWe are excited to announce the premiere of part one of Two Griffins Theatre Company’s wonderful new film, Vagabond, streaming through December 6th. Filmed locally, you may recognize the actors!!
A bewildered young boy wakes in the midst of a strange desert scape in an unforgiving, mystical land to discover he doesn’t remember who he is or where he is. Alone on his arduous quest, he encounters mysterious characters and fantastical creatures that could help him complete his destiny. But can Vagabond ever find his way back home?
Tickets are $12. We will send you the link to watch the film. A portion of ticket sales will go to CVTG. Thank you. Pay for tickets here!
