THE 5 & DIME
A group of artists and friends came together with a common goal: To make a change in the Jacksonville Cultural Arts Community. From this, The 5 & Dime, A Theatre Company, was born. It started with a simple question, “Why not us?” And so we offer this: “Why not YOU?”
The 5 & Dime opens doors to and for all artists of all disciplines whose passion, skill, drive, and enthusiasm need a place to call home. We hope to facilitate diverse opportunities and a supportive environment to feature flourishing talent and collaboration. So, with a renewed hope in what is possible – from people just like you – we boldly set forth on this venture… come along, won’t you?
