As a hub for theater, art, music, education and creative expression, Auburn Public Theater has brought new life to downtown Auburn through the following key programs: Producing/Presenting Series for Performing Arts (music, comedy, theater, & word), Independent Cinema, Community Events & Partnerships (including low-cost rentals), Education (in studio space at APT, and in local schools & community centers), and the NYSCA Decentralization Arts Regranting program for the Finger Lakes region.
