About The Acorn Center for the Performing Arts

The Acorn is a creative space and a creative force all in one. Homegrown in Three Oaks, Michigan, it's locally run by performing arts enthusiasts. Dedicated to providing good times for everyone right here in Harbor Country.

The Acorn fills the year with a breadth of diverse programming that ensures no two events are alike. Performances span from Americana to indie/alternative to world music, from gut-splitting comedy to heart-wrenching drama to feel-good entertainment. Local stars premiere new works. Regional performers, playwrights and songwriters springboard their careers. Renowned national and international artists reinvent, refresh, reconnect with their art. The Acorn bonds performers and audiences. It’s a reputation we proudly foster.

Yet The Acorn is more than a stage. It is a dynamic collaboration with nonprofits, schools and area theater troupes. A synergistic center for new experiences to entertain a range of ages here and in our wider community. Because live entertainment is always best shared.

The Acorn is also people. Talented staff, board members and volunteers who spark ideas and make them a reality. Producers and artists who push the quality bar higher. Patrons who enjoy having drinks while watching memorable performances with friends, yet also support nearby businesses before or after the show. Donors and sponsors who fuel the future of the performing arts. Neighbors and community leaders who believe Harbor Country is exactly where The Acorn can thrive … and that they can grow with us, too.

Acorn is excellence … live!
