Sign Up at Patreon

Patreon is a safe, secure and convenient way to support our theatre.  Sign up and establish a monthly credit card payment with patreon, and your gift keeps on giving, month after month. There's no minimum. A few dollars a month from a bunch of people will go along way to cover those monthly expenses.

BONUS: our patreon subscribers get access to specials that the general public do not. Right now, you can watch a series of singing and acting lessons held at our virtual training camp from summer 2020, plus our special virtual songs are there too.

We Love Our Donors!

It takes a village to make a community theatre! We would not be where we are today without the contributions of wonderful people in the community.  And of course we can't get to where we want to be tomorrow without support from our new friends and existing sponsors. Thank you for your continued support.
