Support the Temple Theatre


The challenges of a new year await the ARTT volunteers who market and present the season series of five shows. They have added bonus shows to attract a more diverse audience and have created a new children’s series called “Showtime for Youth”. They provide technical services and ushers for rental shows, clean and make needed repairs, and handle all the correspondence and financial business for the theatre and Encore. Rentals at Encore include events such as weddings, private parties, cast parties, and vendor shows.

Without committed volunteers and your annual dues, the Temple Theatre would not be able to bring programs and activities to our rural area. Your dues help to pay for the routine expenses such as utilities, insurance, and repairs. In addition, your 2016 dues will enable us to present our 15th season series of quality shows at reasonable prices, while offering our venue to schools and other community organizations for cultural events. ARTT presents nationally-known performers as well as regional and local talent. Live music from genres including classical, country, rock ‘n roll, jazz, bluegrass, western, and pop as well as plays have been presented.

With your help, ARTT can continue to maintain The Historic Temple Theatre to serve as a civic and cultural center for the surrounding communities. Your name will be included in the membership roster in the season show programs and in 2016 issue of ARTT’s newsletter, “Back Stage.”
