Peninsula Players Theatre has received a $75,000 grant from the Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) Foundation for its housing campaign, Act II: Protecting the Past, Ensuring the Future. The theater announced the launch of this $3.5 million campaign at the opening-night performance June 14. 

The theater plans to build two new dormitories to replace the aged, insufficient structures in which company members currently reside and will break ground on the project in September.

“We are thrilled to receive this generous grant from the WPS Foundation,” said managing director Brian Kelsey. “By supporting the housing campaign, the WPS Foundation is not only investing in the future of Peninsula Players Theatre, but also in the Door County community. We are grateful to have community partners such as the WPS Foundation that value both the importance of the arts and its contribution to our county as a whole.”
