We are excited to have two very different events scheduled for April:
On Sunday April 13th at 2:00pm at Richardson Performing Arts Center, Southwestern College (College St, Winfield, KS) the Marquee will be presenting the movie Jayhawkers. Both screenwriters Kevin Willmott and Scott Richardson will be in attendance for a question and answer session following the screening. Kevin also produced and directed the movie. Jayhawkers is a movie that will entice not only KU fans (current KU basketball forward Justin Wesley portrays Wilt Chamberlain), but also those who are interested to learn how a group of unlikely allies modernized college sports and changed a small mid-western town (Lawrence, KS), serving as a parallel to the Civil Rights movement that would transform the entire American society.
On Saturday April 26th at 7:00pm at Central Baptist Church (904 Wheat Rd, Winfield, KS) gospel group The Armouraires will perform at a benefit concert for the Marquee revitalization.
More details and more events will be coming soon. Keep coming back to check on what's happening with the Marquee Performing Arts Center.
Marquee, Inc., was formed in March, 2005 as a non-profit 501 (c) (3) corporation governed by a Board of Directors. The theatre building was donated to the group by B&B Theatre, who had purchased the former Fox Theatre building in 1980, and in 2004 moved their operations from Arkansas City and Winfield to Strother Field.
After several years of preliminary rehabilitation, we have launched an intensive capital campaign to enable Marquee Performing Arts Center to become a reality in downtown Winfield. When completed, the facility will provide unique opportunities to respect our cherished arts tradition and build upon it in new and exciting ways! Please take a few moments to explore our website and dream with us as we bring Movies, Music and More back to downtown Winfield.
