WAITE PARK -- After twelve weeks of construction GREAT Theatre is ready to unveil their new Helgeson Learning Lab Theatre. Wednesday's grand opening kicks off the 20th Anniversary season for GREAT Theatre.

Executive Director Dennis Whipple says they will celebrate in their new space with a special summer performance of the Broadway Musical "The Secret Garden" starting Thursday and running through Sunday.

The Helgeson Learning Lab Theatre was built through the support of their Capital Campaign, which raised over $1.8-million.

The new theatre will allow for interactive experiences, increased summer camp opportunities and an expansion of onstage and backstage opportunities.
