The Portage Center for the Arts, located on the east edge of the downtown district, hosts many cultural events during the year. The former church building has been converted to a 270-seat theater and gallery. There is a Performance Arts Series in the fall and winter months featuring a wide range of musical performances. The Charles & Eleanor Drury Gallery at the Portage Center for the Arts features art exhibits that change monthly from September through May showcasing local and national recognized artists. During the summer months the center becomes very active with the Zona Gale Young People's Theatre, featuring a Children's Theatre Production and a professional quality youth theatre production. The Gale Singers, our local community choir, gives performances at Christmas and in the spring. The Portage Area Community Theatre also performs two shows annually at the Center.
