Keeping the Fischer Alive

Since our inception in 1998, the Vermilion Heritage Foundation has raised funds and attracted volunteers to this historic theatre. The Fischer Theatre has a long and wondrous history and we, the board of the Vermilion Heritage Foundation, have been working tirelessly to keep that rich history alive. From Ghost Tours to High Teas and Artist's Workshops we continue to educate people on the importance of an arts complex for the vitality of Danville and the surrounding area. To that end, we have updated the name of the theatre to The Fischer Grand Opera House and Arts Complex.

This website is a collection of the history and wonder that is the Fischer Theatre's past but we also look to the future. You will find current events you can attend, information about our mission so you can spread the word and you can also learn about ways you can help our cause.

However you choose to get involved we thank you for your interest in the historic Fischer Theatre and are excited to have you on this journey to light the Fischer once again.
