PETOSKEY, Mich. (AP) - A groundbreaking ceremony is planned for a 500-seat theater complex in Petoskey’s Bay Harbor resort community.

The Great Lakes Center for the Arts will be located on the shore of Lake Michigan’s Little Traverse Bay. The founding artistic director is Michael Kaiser, former president of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and chairman of the DeVos Institute of Arts Management.

Kaiser says the Great Lakes Center will host cultural arts, intellectual dialogue and arts education programs. They will include musical performances in a variety of styles, theatrical productions, opera, films, dance, lectures and children’s series.

In addition to the theater, the complex will include a community engagement room, rooftop terrace and donor lounge.

The groundbreaking is scheduled for July 2 at 5 p.m.
