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.

We're going to be looking out for another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs should peak in the mid to high 90s with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 105°. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. By that time there is a good potential of some rainfall and storms picking up across the Tri-State. There is a chance we could see some severe weather develop with these storms. We'll start to see relief return Friday afternoon into Saturday.
