We can’t do it without you!

Join Raue Center For The Arts in our mission to provide the Arts For All by contributing to the Williams Street Repertory Fund a Need campaign. Williams Street Repertory is our award winning, in-house theatre company, poised to reemerge from the pandemic with four productions in 2024.

Your generous, tax-deductible donation will play a crucial role in ensuring that we can continue producing outstanding shows, support our artists, and raise the bar of artistic excellence in the Northwest suburbs.Pandemic fallout has gutted theaters across the country, with more closing each month.

Our theater has been a part of the Downtown Crystal Lake community for nearly 100 years, opening in 1929.  Now, our unique partnership with the city of Crystal Lake and Home State Bank, secures Raue Center’s future as part of the community for another 100 years.

With your help, we know we can reemerge with strength and prove, once again, that you don’t need to go to the City to see exciting, thought-provoking, and insightful theater.

Join us as we continue our post-pandemic rebuilding efforts. Help us bring live theatre back to our stage for the first time since 2019. Your support can help us fund all aspects of the upcoming productions from artist housing and expenses, to building the set, to keeping the lights on and the sound rolling during the show, and so much more.

We look forward to presenting a season filled with laughter and tears, sighs and cheers. A season with something for everyone: from classics like Shakespeare’s Othello to exciting new works like the Tony-Winning musical, Bandstand. Please join us and give to the Williams Street Repertory Fund a Need today. 

WSRep returns in 2024!

Williams Street Repertory is a proud member of Actors’ Equity Association, the Union of Professional Actors and Stage Managers in the United States since 2016. WSRep is the only professional theatre company in McHenry County.
