Get Involved

The Friends of the Theater supports the H.J. Ricks Centre for the Arts as a thriving destination for Hancock County residents and visitors.

Greenfield's downtown historic theater welcomes dozens of acts each year and draws tourists from across the state and farther. The H.J. Ricks Centre for the Arts has been a focal point of the Main Street landscape since 1946, and you can help keep that legacy alive. Support the Friends of the Theater by becoming a member, volunteering your time and talents, or donating to our cause.

Christmas at the Ricks

The annual Christmas at the Ricks variety show showcases the wonderful talent in our community, with 100% of the proceeds funding projects to preserve the very theater that houses this tradition. This year, our concert fundraiser is took shape as a virtual talent show open to all ages and acts. Participants competed with holiday-themed videos to win cash prizes of $500, $250, or $100. See the contestants and winners!
