14 N Mississippi Avenue, Atlantic City, NJ 08401

When St. Michael’s closed its parish school in the late 1980s, the building remained dormant until an eighteen-month, $3.5 million renovation, funded solely by the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, was completed in October of 2003. Renamed “Dante Hall Theater of the Arts,” this beautifully restored and intimate performance space reopened with the promise of renewing the tradition of serving the Atlantic City and surrounding communities as a home for the performing arts. In 2011, Stockton University took control of the theater. By providing quality programming and performances to local communities, Stockton University and Dante Hall Theater aim to strengthen New Jersey’s efforts of restoring Atlantic City to a cultural and family destination.
