The Coffee Pot Is On
These words were the signal during WWII that a troop train was coming to the North Platte Canteen. In that tradition, the North Platte Community Playhouse is calling upon its patrons to give generously to our fundraising campaign to restore the historic Neville Center for the Performing Arts to its full splendor. Our one million dollar renovation will convert our meeting space, the Canteen Room, into an elegant destination for many events, as well as update the office, stage and exterior of the building. Sharing your Canteen spirit will enable the Fox Theatre to remain “the” place in our community to experience the arts in a beautiful, historic setting. We are always grateful to the community for their support of the Arts in North Platte!
Lights, Camera, Action!
North Platte is home to the North Platte Community Playhouse and the historic 850-seat Fox Theatre. These facilities have a long tradition of hosting live theatre productions, movies, guest speakers, community concerts, talented musicians and children’s performances. The theatre was constructed in 1929 and since that time has served the residents of west-central Nebraska in a profound and meaningful way.
