The Lebowsky Center was hit by a disastrous fire in 2007. A new plan was implemented on a phased basis in order to recreate the building. An existing structure was purchased, which allowed for a scene shop behind the upstage wall. The local Chemical Bank gifted the adjacent
building and a revised “Master Plan” envisioned the re-construction of the main stage and a studio theater, including an expanded lobby space in the west annex. Using the Design/Build process the rehabilitation was completed in 2014.
