Our 2015-2016 Season: 
Thank You for Being a Part of It!

2016-2017 Season of Professional Performances to be Announced This Summer


Thank you for being a part of our 2015-2016 season at the Forest Hills Fine Arts
Center – our 12th annual season since opening in the Spring of 2004. We showcased a 4-show season line-up that offered a variety of entertainment throughout the year. We felt it was important to try something different with the number of shows we offer as a package, while still providing a high-quality show experience for our patrons.

As always, we want to thank our season partners, sponsors, advertisers, community members, families, students, staff, volunteers, and arts patrons that have continued to support us throughout the years. We couldn’t do it without you!

To recap, it was a wonderful 12th year of operations and we are looking forward to sharing our next season with you!
