How to Help Matthews Playhouse Continue our Mission of Theatre Excellence and Education into 2023 and Beyond!

Dear Friends of Matthews Playhouse,

We truly could not have survived these trying pandemic times without the tremendous support and encouragement we received from our community of donors, patrons, and partners. Our mission is to enrich the lives of children, adults, and families by inviting them to participate in the wonderful world of performing arts and education - and as we close out 2022, you can help us continue our mission by making a contribution today.

When you donate to Matthews Playhouse, you are supporting:

  • Need-Based Scholarships for our School of Theatre Programs

  • Access to Mainstage Productions for Families With Limited Resources

  • Valuable Partnerships With Other Local Non-Profit Organizations

  • Quality Theatre Education Programming

  • Active Engagement with Our Community

  • Our Commitment to Build Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in our community.

  • Financial Assistance for Underserved Schools to Attend Weekday School Performances

Your donation will help us continue to provide quality education programs AND bring public theatre performances to the community for you, your children, and your family in the future.

We are better together, and when you support the arts, you support your local community!
