The arts council hopes to fund the theater with various grants and start small in the beginning. A recent meeting drew about 30 people interested in participating. Planners hope the same interest is shown for a future children’s theater.

“Art transcends all ages,” Loch said. “You have young people and senior citizens sitting side by side, creating art and enjoying art. … It gives them an appreciation of the world around them and the people around them.”

He calls the launching of the theater a “turning point” for RAAC. “To me, this is very high up in our major milestones,” Loch said. “We’re committed to building a community. We have just chosen the arts as the venue to do that.”

To find out more about participating in the theater, contact RAAC at or call 651-600-8693.
