Thrive will provide a curated mix of high-quality music, theater, film, dance, spoken word, and comedy at the Geauga Theater. In order to best fulfill its non-profit mission, Thrive will partner local educational institutions, artists, community service organizations, businesses in and around Chardon, its current roster of dynamic performers, and the talented people of northeast Ohio.

In addition to producing a plethora of live shows, Thrive will operate as a revival house cinema, showing classic films inside a classic theater, as well as showcasing local filmmakers. In partnership with the City of Chardon, Thrive will successfully brand and transform the Geauga Theater into a bustling community arts center of distinction - one that looks to the future, while maintaining reverence for the past - a premiere destination for professional performing arts, entertainment, economic development, and education.


Thrive’s improvements to the Geauga Theater will focus on restoring charm and highlighting its history while also modernizing many elements. The art deco architecture of the building will be highlighted and elements of this style will be added throughout.
