Our History

In the Fall of 2016, The Forum Theatre Company moved to the Wilke Center at First United Methodist Church, a former gymnasium transformed into an intimate, full equipped black box space. The move was a positive step for The Forum, launching a new era of professionalism and a renewed focus on innovation and quality. With the production of The Royale in 2018, The Forum again took another step forward, focusing on developing a fully professional theatre that was Equitable, Diverse and Inclusive incorporating a culturally diverse group of artists in all facets of the theatre management and performance.
