Nelson Hall Performing Arts


Anyone who has visited the Nelson Hall Center for the Performing Arts and enjoyed the delights of choral and chamber music, renowned dance troops, popular music performances and guest speakers understands what this theatre means to Elim Park and the greater Cheshire community.

Endow the Arts Fund

The creation of Nelson Hall Center for the Performing Arts was the result of Elim Park's successful Celebrate Life! capital campaign. With vibrant new performances offered on a regular schedule, Elim Park has created an opportunity for everyone who cares about the arts in our community to support the efforts in Nelson Hall Center for the Performing Arts with our Endow the Arts Fund.

This fund provides sustaining support for all events hosted in Nelson Hall, including our special Park Place and Nelson Hall Presents series, as well as  dozens of other programs. In addition, the fund ensures that Nelson Hall retains its magnificent appeal, season after season.
