Chad Swan-Badgero has been pinching himself a whole lot these days to make sure he’s not dreaming.

As the artistic director of Peppermint Creek Theatre Organization (PCTC) for the past 28 years, he thinks his itinerant theater has eventually discovered a home, which is established to start Oct. 1.

The house is at Sycamore Creek United Methodist Church’s new campus close to Eastwood Towne Heart at 2200 Lake Lansing Road in the former property of Asbury United Methodist Church, a church Sycamore Creek is adopting.

Pastor Tom Arthur promptly committed to producing the room and its sanctuary a multi-function making that could act as a carrying out arts center for groups that accomplish to audiences of 100 to 200.

In a push convention last week, Arthur introduced that when the campus opens, it will be as Phase Just one, a sanctuary for worship, a doing arts middle and a licensed community kitchen. Its citizens will be PCTC, Ixion Ensemble Theatre, Hope Central Urban Arts and Honey Bun Bakery, an LGBTQ-centered bakery.
