Saving West Virginia Public Theatre

West Virginia Public TheatreWhat do the arts mean to community?

What does exposure to the arts mean for kids?

We don’t have to tell you, because you KNOW the value of the arts. We contacted you about a month ago, asking for your support of West Virginia Public Theatre's summer season. With about 10 days remaining, we’re again asking for your help as we seek to keep the arts alive in Morgantown. With your support, this summer we will bring to the greater Morgantown community three theatre productions, including Young Frankenstein, Sylvia and You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.

To those of you who have already donated – THANK YOU. It’s because of you that we’ve raised 28% of our goal!

If you haven't made a donation yet, please consider doing so now. A donation in any amount - $10, $50, $100 - will make a difference as we strive to provide quality, professional theatre programming and educational outreach experiences for all citizens, including more than 8,000 children.

We have personally witnessed the impact that WV Public Theatre has on its audiences. It is an awesome thing to see a child first connect with the magic of live theater. You have the power to make that happen through your donation. We have both personally made donations to this campaign - will you? To donate, click here.
