The Heart of Our Town

Your help is needed.

By Charlie Simmons and Ken Morgan

When the Clarksville Community Players dream, they dream big. They recently announced a goal of raising $2 million to renovate The Clarksville Fine Arts Center. Located within the Historic District of Clarksville, the 288-seat auditorium was originally built as part of the Clarksville High School in 1934 by the Public Works Administration.

The building could have been torn down like so many other outdated structures, but the Clarksville Community Players made a commitment to save the building. Over the years, they have established it as the focal point of a vibrant arts community that reaches far beyond the town limits. Audience members come from a four-county area and beyond that is home to over 30,000 residents. Over the years the Players have built a strong organization, but the time has come to do major renovations to the building. The basic structure of the historic building is sound and has the potential to be a state-of-the-art facility to host theatre, music, dance, workshops, an art gallery and other community events.

That’s where you come in. We need your help to fund the much-needed renovations. The board of the Players is fully invested in this project and has already raised over $400,000. We hope you will embrace our dream of creating something special in the heart of Clarksville. Together we can make a lasting impact for generations to come.
