Its mission as a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, as listed in its constitution, is to “produce worthwhile plays, musicals, concerts, and other performances in the interest of educating as well as entertaining the community.” Its further purposes are to foster interest in the dramatic arts and other forms of cultural activities, and to encourage and foster the talents of persons interested in the dramatic arts.

FUNDRAISING GOAL: $5,000
Programs Supported by Your Donations
We produce musical and theatrical productions to Ellwood City and surrounding areas. We have held musical theatre training and camps for youth. Our performers also provide entertainment for local retirement and healthcare facilities.
Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
The Red Barn is an actual barn nearly 100 years old and needs painting and some repairs to the structure. We would also like to upgrade the theatre seating for our patrons. These projects have taken a back seat to the actual production of shows. Because we are a Summer theatre, we missed 2 seasons during the pandemic and are still rebuilding our finances from that loss of revenue. We will be grateful for any contributions resulting from this fundraising "Giving Week".
