The Jesters performing group is itself a unique story in Fort Wayne's theater community.
Formed more than thirty years ago and sponsored by the University of Saint Francis, the Jesters is comprised of people with mild to severe disabilities with a wide variety of generations represented, with the goal of enhancing each member's quality of life.
Each spring, the group presents an original, multi-media performance.
Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry announced a proposal today to help renovate the University of Saint Francis’ downtown campus. The proposal would be paid for with the City’s Legacy Funds.
Henry says Fort Wayne is a center of education, and the city should capitalize on that benefit. He says "a lot of people don't realize that we have truly a college town. We have over 30,000 college students in this city."
USF plans to further renovate the Scottish Rite Facility on Berry Street, which is now their Performing Arts Center.
