When the Esquire Theater closed its doors and was near demolition, a visionary group of civic minded folks had the foresight to imagine the possibility of transforming it into a performing arts center for the city of Klamath Falls…. And so the Ross Ragland Theater was conceived!
The theater is the cultural anchor of Klamath Falls and a central part of lives in our community. After 30 years of providing premier entertainment the theater is in need of facility upgrades to remain a state-of-the art performing arts center. Ticket sales only cover about a third of the cost to operate the theater. The balance of funds come from generous commitments from our community and corporations so we are able to fulfill our mission each season.
Thank you for taking this opportunity to join with our many loyal supporters and patrons to support and celebrate this cultural gem. Your generosity will help us maintain this magnificent theater for generations to come!
