SHIPSHEWANA, Ind. (WNDU) - Blue Gate has announced the construction of a new $3 million theater space at the Blue Gate Performing Arts Center.

The new 1,500-seat theater is set to break ground before May and will be completed by January 2020.

Blue Gate says the new theater will feature an increased staging area, allowing for larger-production shows that many national touring acts often use.

The project is aided by an economic development grant totaling $377,000 over 10 years.
