About this project
The Sorg Opera House is one of Middletown, Ohio’s finest historical structures, expressing the vitality and culture of the city’s past and now its future. The silence of its vacancy is deafening, its prospect for rejuvenation, inspiring. Welcome to the start of a new vision for a Middletown jewel.
SORG Opera Revitalization Group (SORG) aims to preserve this registered historic landmark in order to provide and sustain a majestic performing arts venue for the community.
We intend to offer the people of Middletown and surrounding communities the opportunity to enjoy cultural, educational, civic, and corporate events that will entertain, enrich and inspire.
SORG is a 501 (c) 3 pending non-profit operating under the fiscal management of the Middletown Community Foundation. Your pledge will help us fill the house once again!
We look forward to working with you in adding another beat to the heart of downtown Middletown, Ohio.
Risks and challenges
The Sorg Opera Revitalization Group has been offered three challenge grants to support first floor replacement glass, restroom renovations, architectural services, and environmental abatement. We are racing to meet a deadline based $100,000 total match to accomplish the initial phases of renovations.
Once open, the vision calls for multi-genre live performances, theater, dance, movies, and artist studios that will enrich and entertain diverse audiences.
If you believe in the preservation of America's classic performance spaces, if you agree that buildings like a revitalized Sorg Opera House can bring economic life to city centers, then you see the vision. Please help us make this project a reality and fill the house once again. Make your pledge today!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
