Veterans Program» Crystal Lake, IL Theater

To embrace, engage and encourage our veteran community through the power of the arts.

Raue Center would like to extend a special thank you to all of our veterans in our community! As we strive to continually engage our community, we want to provide a special offer for those who have sacrificed more than we know. Many veterans have returned or are returning to a completely different “everyday” and the adjustments can be extremely difficult.

As the leading Performing Arts Center in McHenry County, Raue Center for the Arts wants to support our veterans and ensure they are a celebrated part of the community by providing opportunities to enjoy live music, comedy, and professional theatre.

Raue Center has set aside a select amount of complimentary seats for select performances. If you know a veteran who would enjoy a night of live entertainment, please contact Raue Center’s Box Office at 815.356.9212 for more details and to schedule a night out at the theater.   We might also be able to provide certificates for drinks and food either at the theater or one of our amazing sponsors like 1776 Restaurant and or Georgios Pizzeria and Pub.

If you are a veteran or are a family member of a vet please register with Raue Center.  If in the unlikely, event that all complimentary seats are committed Raue Center would offer a 25% discount to all vets (some restrictions do apply).
