“home to the ghost of Madame Helena Modjeska”
The Calumet Theatre Company was incorporated in 1983 as an independent, non-profit organization to program events and encourage continuing restoration. The Calumet Theatre is owned by and leased from the Village of Calumet. The Calumet Theatre Company assumes responsibility for all operating costs for the facility. In the absence of local tax support, it is funded by ticket sales, user fees, the State of Michigan through the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs, membership dues, and other fund-raising activities. The Theatre Company is a member-supported volunteer-based organization (500-plus members) with a 16 member Board of Directors, 6 employees and over 80 volunteers. This theater is believed to be home to the ghost of renowned Shakespearean actress Madame Helena Modjeska. The ghost is said to have first appeared around 1958 to help actress Adysse Lane when she forgot her lines during a performance. Witnesses also have felt unexplained cold breezes and heard music that seemingly comes from nowhere.
