Prairie Wind Players (PWP) continues to raise funds to support improvements in Roosevelt Hall. 100% of your donation goes directly toward capital improvements in our 87-year old venue.

The COVID-19 pandemic created an opportunity to make several substantial changes and address facility improvements. Without the need to work around our normal performing arts and event schedule, we have been able to address work not easily scheduled during a traditional season. One example of this work was a complete interior paint job completed in late summer, 2020, and a basement Green Room floor refinishing in May 2021. Our strategic planning process identified several expensive projects we will need to address with Roosevelt Hall in the coming years, including:

  • Energy improvements & building weatherization, including replacement of our heating and cooling equipment
  • Green Room renovations and upgrades for our performing artists
  • Basement work to proactively address water infiltration
  • Facility accessibility improvements for patrons
  • Maple floor refinishing throughout public areas

In 1981, when PWP volunteers first renovated Roosevelt Hall, and continuing since 1983 when PWP purchased the building, we have had tremendous support from our members, supporters, patrons, and the region in keeping Roosevelt Hall accessible to the public and in continuous use as an auditorium and performing arts space. We appreciate your donations toward maintaining this historic and iconic structure.
