The Evansville community is coming together in hopes of saving the Civic Theatre.

Several people gathering at Lamasco Park Saturday for the 3rd Annual Civic Theatre Off Broadway 5K.

Participants braving the cold weather and rain.

Earlier in the week, officials announced the theatre is in danger of closing its doors permanently due to the pandemic after 95 years.

"Arts are so important in our community," says Megan Leavitt, Evansville Civic Theatre Board Director. "It helps with our childrens schools being able to get out and express themselves. It helps adults alike as well being able to open up to new experiences. It provides entertainment to our community. A way to escape"

Their campaign is to raise approximately $135,000 to keep the theatre in operation through the beginning of August 2021.
