For more than 40 years, Merrill Arts Center’s largest program, Woodbury Community Theater, has served as a cornerstone of the arts community in Woodbury, Minnesota.The theater program is between a community organization and a professional organization,” managing director Kajsa Jones says. “We call it an ‘emerging organization,” she says. “A lot of people who start here go on to get professional training. It’s a rich starting place in the arts ecosystem around East Metro in the Minneapolis area.”
