The Dunes Arts Foundation, Inc., which operates the Dunes Summer Theatre and The Dunes Youth Programs, was incorporated in the State of Indiana on January 17th, 1952. The Dunes Summer Theatre presents plays, concerts, acting and pottery classes. Located in Michiana Shores, the theatre is nestled on a scenic 20 acre wooded site, about a half mile from the Indiana Dunes and the Lake Michigan shore. It seats over 270 patrons, serves beer and wine, hosts 12 cabins for summer actors and interns, and has an outside pavilion. Under new, professional management since the Fall of 2016, The Dunes Theatre is being revitalized with much needed structural and grounds improvements in an effort to bring a quality and comfortable experience to theatre goers. The board is also committed to bringing professional, high-quality productions to the stage.
