Support the Frauenthal Center


Our vision is to be the region’s dynamic, historic center for community enrichment that inspires public engagement, sparks economic vitality and reflects the community we serve.

Your gift makes it ALL possible.

Thank you!

Here are just a few reasons your gift is so important:

  • A diverse offering of performances are held on the acoustically superb Frauenthal and Beardsley stages every year.
  • Ticket sales cover only 50% of the costs associated with bringing talented performances to perform in Muskegon. This means we rely on the generosity of our community, to keep ticket prices affordable for all.
  • Over 75,000 youth and adults of all backgrounds and walks of life experience different programs offered in the Frauenthal Center.
  • Our historic Frauenthal building opened as a movie theatre in 1930, it is now a performance space for other area arts groups including the West Michigan Symphony and Muskegon Civic Theatre. It is also a sought after community venue for public and private functions.
How to Give

Because the Frauenthal Center is a dynamic part of the community today, we have created an Operating Fund with the Community Foundation for Muskegon County where your gift will support the Frauenthal now and in the future.
