About the Amphitheater

The amphitheater was originally built in 1995 and dedicated in memory of Jessie Frohlich by Edward P. Frohlich. An acoustic engineer helped choose the acoustically ideal location, and Michigan architect Bob Holdeman designed the venue. It was rebuilt for the 2014 season with a major grant from Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs. Its terraced seating, built by David Barr and Jim Ristine, accommodates about 150 people, with additional space for another 50 to 100 people to bring lawn chairs and picnic blankets.
