On May 4, 2007, an EF5 tornado leveled the City of Greensburg and the Twilight Theatre. The residents of Greensburg and Kiowa County were determined to rebuild their town and their theatre. Contrary to popular belief, after the tornado, money trees didn’t sprout up in the empty lots. Local businesses, officials and dedicated residents pooled their resources and funded a rebuilding effort – they demanded a community filled with arts, technology and educational opportunities. Greensburg is now home to the 5.4.7 Arts Center, the Kiowa County Media Center Foundation, and the awaited Twilight Theatre & Community Auditorium. We honor those who had the vision and generosity to help us rise again.
