The Dunes Arts Foundation Mission
The Mission of The Dunes Arts Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is to build a renowned professional, non-equity, self-sustaining, regional theatre that provides high-quality performing and fine arts productions that inspire audiences while stimulating local commerce and promoting community spirit.
The Dunes Arts Foundation, Inc., which sponsors the Dunes Summer Theatre and The Dunes Youth Programs, was incorporated in the State of Indiana on January 17th, 1952. The Harbor Country theatre is nestled on a scenic 20 acre wooded site, about a half mile from the Michigan dunes and the lake shore, between the border of Indiana and Michigan. It seats over 240 patrons, hosts 12 cabins for summer actors and interns, and has an outside pavilion. Under new management since the Fall of 2016, The Dunes Theatre is being revitalized with much needed structural and grounds improvements in an effort to bring a quality and comfortable experience to theatre goers, while enhancing and influencing the region with strong educational and cultural experiences.
