Marilynn A. Wick bought a shuttered theater in 2013 to store her huge collection of Broadway costumes. She also wanted to put the 333-seat auditorium to good use, so she started a local theater company. The company puts on performances of well-known musicals, giving members of the community a chance to enjoy live theater. The Wick Theater is now home to many local theatrical productions and is a popular venue for both locals and tourists alike.
