What is the best way to support the theater during this time?

The loss of income from changes like this threaten the future of nonprofit arts organizations around the country, including the Playhouse. In response to this situation, the Playhouse has undergone a dramatic effort to reduce our operating expenses, including furloughing 50% of our employees.  

Today, we are asking our community to stand up with us and assist us in safeguarding our future.  We are grateful for our Playhouse family, who shares our passion for the power of live theater. If you are able, please consider donating to the Playhouse at this time to alleviate some of the financial burden that this pandemic has caused
