4th Street Theater wins Community Foundation grant

Back To Front Page


The 4th Street Theater was selected as a recipient of a Community Fund Grant from the Porter County Community Foundation. The grant provided funds to acquire new lighting equipment necessary to expand the theater's artistic vision through their performances. Color-changing LED lights will replace old lighting instruments which are more energy-efficient and allow for more flexibility in production design.

In addition, a new laptop and projector will help their volunteer team run sound cues, lighting cues, and special effects, expanding their current capabilities to enhance a performance. This new equipment will broaden the theaters creative capacity and foster local talent of all ages through the arts.

The 4th Street Theater was originally founded in 1990 as the North Coast Cultural Association and became the 4th Street Theater in 1999. The group provides a one of a kind theatrical experience to community members from all over Northwest Indiana whether they participate on stage or are in the audience.

The organization has earned over 60 awards for excellence in all aspects of theatrical production from the Northwest Indiana Excellence in Theater Foundation. Grants are awarded through an open grant making process by the Porter County Community Foundation to nonprofit organizations serving Porter County.

The Foundation inspires giving and engages the community to improve lives in our community now and forever. To learn more, contact the Foundation at 219.465.0294 or visit
