2015-2016 PERFORMING ARTS SEASON
Developing, Supporting & Promoting the Arts
As a non-profit, regional center for the arts, the Schauer Arts Center provides
experiences that inspire creativity and connect people. We strive to be a vital
resource that fosters, supports, and enriches the cultural, educational, and
social well-being of our community.
Filled with culture and history, the Schauer Center was transformed from a canning
factory built in 1919 into an architectural award-winning performing and visual arts
center. Since opening in 2001, the Schauer Center presents professional touring
performances in the Ruth A. Knoll Theater and regional artwork in the Suckow Family
Art Gallery, and also serves as a home to our resident groups: Hartford City Band,
Hartford Community Chorus, The Hartford Players, and the Kettle Moraine
Fine Arts Guild.
We are a gathering place where people from all walks of life achieve a sense of
belonging and benefit from enjoying and participating in the arts. Our year-round
School of the Arts offers music, theater, dance, and visual arts education for all ages,
levels, and visions. In addition, the Schauer Center is the perfect backdrop for a variety
of special occasions and business functions that can be hosted throughout our facility.

FROM THE DIRECTOR»
S
HARING OUR STORIES is this season’s theme. Whether told through song, dance,
painting, or monologue; the arts provide amazing ways to share our stories. Each performance this
year will do just that —whether it’s the artist’s personal story, the stories of a particular culture or time in
history, or a beloved story from Americana and more — stories will be shared all season long. To learn more
about each story or artist, there’s a suggested reading list for each performance on the First National Bank of
Hartford’s Mainstage Series. Visit your local library to start your journey into the 15th season!*
The Schauer Arts Center carries its own amazing story. Did you know we’re in a former canning factory
that was built nearly 100 years ago? Did you know we pull our core audience from a 40 mile radius around
Hartford? Did you know we’re an independent non-profit organization that relies on your support to
continue the work we do? In the late 1990s, Fred and Bea Schauer decided to create an arts center for their
friends and neighbors to gather in, to share in artistic experiences, and socialize with one another. Their
initial gift set the dream in motion and wonderful donors throughout the greater community contributed to
make it a reality. Many donors continue to do so each year, ensuring the Schauer Center continues to thrive
for generations to come. The support of our Friends over the years has allowed us to grow our facility and
expand our programming to best serve you, your family, friends, and neighbors. The Schauer Arts Center
wouldn’t be here without you. Your gifts are an investment that sees many returns through the over 40,000
smiling faces that enjoy our performances and events each year; through the students who learn and grow
in our School of the Arts; through those we take artists to in senior care facilities, Boys & Girls Clubs, schools,
and churches; and through the improved quality of life that you and all those around you experience just by
the Schauer Center’s existence. Thank you for helping us reach 15 years. Let’s celebrate!

a date! It’s a swirling sandstorm of famous
Arabian Tales from Ali Baba to Scheherazade,

journeys to find a magic lamp in a Cave

Aladdin seeks answers and advice from
wise genies, a powerful sultan, and his own
mother to find a way to meet the Princess.
However, even with the lamp in hand,
Aladdin will have to learn that it takes more
than a wish to make a good impression. Full
of memorable characters, from lost Penguins
to talking Palm Trees, this is an adventure
worthy of 1001 laughs. MCTInc.org
