The Boardwalk Theatre Celebrates Groundbreaking in June

June 28, 2022

The EDA team was excited to take part in the groundbreaking ceremony for the new St. Clair performing arts venue, now officially named "The Boardwalk Theatre" on Tuesday, June 28. As part of a naming contest, it was announced the winner is receiving complimentary season tickets for the venue's first season. In another surprise announcement, EDA's CEO Dan Casey, shared that the Boardwalk in downtown St. Clair would be receiving another $400,000 in grant funding as part of an arts and culture grant program. This additional funding towards the $3 million theatre has helped the project reach more than two-thirds of its fundraising goal.  

Congratulations to the Riverbank Theatre family on this wonderful new addition. The new St. Clair performing arts theatre project is made possible by the support of many and championed by Kathy and Tom Vertin. The 12,000-square-foot, 350-seat performing arts facility is expected to open next spring.
