The mission of the Emily Ann Theater and Gardens is to reinvest in the dignity of the human spirit through
the performing arts, the beauty of nature and community fellowship. The EmilyAnn was founded in 1998 to celebrate the life of Emily Ann Rolling by providing a permanent home for Shakespeare Under the Stars, a program in which Emily excelled as an actress and costume designer. We now offer productions, classes and events year round and our 12 acres of park-like grounds are open daily from dawn to dusk. Visitors are welcome to walk through our gardens, enjoy our life-size chess/checker board and interactive musical garden,
spend time bird and butterfly watching, eat a picnic lunch, visit the Veterans Memorial Plaza or simply enjoy the peaceful environment of the ground. Two of our activities have grown each and every year and provide a wonderful opportunity for the community to participate: The Butterfly Festival in the spring and the Trail of Lights at Christmastime. Come by and visit us for a delightful experience!
