Three Rivers Music Theatre latest tenant for Electric Works
Fort Wayne-based Three Rivers Music Theatre has signed a letter of intent to locate its expanding operations at Electric Works.
The organization, which focuses on developing locally cast musical theater performance and education, has experienced steady growth since its founding in 2016, creating a need for expanded space and access to additional resources. Three Rivers Music Theatre will utilize its new location at Electric Works for rehearsal, performance, and education, including its Triple Threat Performance Arts Academy, which provides arts education programs to hundreds of students annually.
“The vibrancy at Electric Works aligns well with our vision and our role in growing and strengthening the arts community in Fort Wayne and northeast Indiana,” Three Rivers’ Andy Planck said in a statement. “We knew we would not be able to sustain our current location, and we’ve grown beyond our capacity, which is a good thing to have happen . . . Our goal, in lockstep with Arts United’s Platform for Cultural Advancement, is to make Fort Wayne a national arts destination, empowered by our presence at Electric Works,” he added.
