Established in 1974, Sock & Buskin Community Theater is a volunteer group whose purpose is to produce, perform, and introduce theater to the community by utilizing local talent and resources. The group has had a bit of a hiatus for the past three years, and is rebuilding, rebranding, and renewing themselves for their upcoming 45th anniversary in 2019. The rebuilding has included a newly structured board, new policies and bylaws, a new outlook on the arts in the community, and soon to come, a new name.
