Welcome to Summer 2023,

Welcome to Summer 2023, our Season of Discovery!

We are so pleased to bring another season of exceptional entertainment to Northern Michigan. Each year, we strive to ensure a wide array of outstanding live performing arts experiences that offer something for everyone. Every season at the Center allows you to laugh with the nation’s top comedians, be moved by live theatre, "jam out" with rock & roll and country greats, be awed by the world's finest classical musicians, and be inspired by living legends. We hope you’ll join us to enjoy old favorites and discover something new throughout this Summer & Fall.

Just like Northern Michigan, the Center is a yearround destination. Our service to the community includes year-round performances open to the public, volunteer and internship opportunities for residents, and discounted use of our facility for local performing arts organizations. The Center’s Next Gen program offers free curriculum-connected live performances for K-12 students. The Dorothy Gerber Strings Program provides tuition-free strings-based music education to youth throughout the region. These programs are made possible by the generous support of our growing family of donors. Turn to Page 35 for more information on ways you can become more involved. No gift is too small to have an impact!

More than two decades ago, a regional culture plan laid out a vision for a performing arts venue that would serve this remarkable community we call home. Many individuals' and organizations' tenacity, vision, and generosity have made that dream a reality. We are honored to be a cultural and social hub for all who work, play, and stay in Northern Michigan.

Very! While located in a beautiful part of the country, Center Stage tends to be quite a hike for most artists. Ticket prices offset roughly one third of the costs of bringing major talent to Northern Michigan, but it’s donor generosity that fills the gap providing audiences with accessible performances and educational opportunities right here, close to home.

Bioidentical Hormones

The secret to feeling great at any age

Around 50, both men and women find themselves mentally sluggish, low on energy and stamina, fading libido, and suffering the “blahs” from the decline of crucial hormones: estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone (yes, women need testosterone, too!).

Women can add a rollercoaster of hot flashes, vaginal dryness, weight gain, and dry, thinning skin. Men lose vitality with shrinking muscle mass, decreased sexual function, and disrupted sleep.

Replacing these natural hormones to youthful levels can reverse all of these, and the research is clear: it’s not “maybe” anymore!

At RegenCen, we’re the experts in bioidentical hormone replacement and other treatments to help you be your best through every stage of life
