Beckwith Friends,


As you probably know, our building has been a part of the community for over a century. As with so many historic buildings, there is much upkeep that needs to be done. We recently completed rebuilds of our stage and our access ramp. Both of these ensure the safety of our volunteers and our patrons. The next project that needs immediate attention is tuckpointing on our brock building. We have received multiple quotes which indicate that the cost for tuckpointing the areas in most need will be in excess of $75,000. It has been recommended by an inspector that we consider having the entire building tuckpointed, rather than targeting spots as they deteriorate. The quote for this puts the cost at approximately $175,000.

Additionally, there are projects that are not immediate needs but will be necessary in the near future.

There are multiple ways that you can make a tax-deductible donation to The Beckwith. Visit, mail a check to The Beckwith Theatre, P.O. Box 882 Dowagiac, MI 49047, or leave a message at 269.782.7653 and we will return your call.

With your support, we can continue our mission to bring live theatre and arts experiences to the community. We appreciate all of our supporters, and we will look for you at The Beckwith soon!
