Project Update

Through our grassroots efforts with individuals and local

foundations and corporations, we have raised over $1.3 million! Financing has been

secured through M&T Bank, so that we could begin our renovations on time in order

to open to the public this November. However, we still need to raise the remaining

funds. Currently, we have a request for funding in under the Redevelopment

Assistance Capital Program (RACP) from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to get

us to the finish line!


Please contact the Governor’s office directly. Tell him what Gamut means to you & ask him to support our request for RACP. Need talking points? See our

easy steps below!


  • • Talk about your experience at Gamut Theatre, what it means to you, and what it will mean to have this new facility
  • • Throw in some bullet points (see below)

  • BULLET POINTS – Pick and choose which ones to use to spruce up your letter:

    • Gamut Theatre has touched the lives of over 500,000 people in its 21 year

    history and currently reaches approximately 30,000 people each year and

    20,000 students

    • Gamut is Popcorn Hat Players Children’s Theatre and Harrisburg

    Shakespeare Company, best known for Free Shakespeare in the Park and its

    numerous education and community outreach programs

    • While based in Harrisburg, PA, Gamut’s educational outreach extends to 32

    different PA counties, and 80% of our students live outside Harrisburg

    • Gamut is repurposing an historic church, the former First Church of God.

    This beautiful building was built in the 1850’s and was the first of its

    denomination. Gamut’s project preserves the history of the building and

    prevents it from being torn down

    • The New Gamut Theatre will be home to two performance venues: the Select

    Medical Mainstage, and the Alexander Grass children’s stage, as well as

    multiple classrooms, allowing Gamut to keep up with the demand for

    expanding education programs and performance offerings

    • The New Gamut Theatre will be a tourist destination, allowing for bus tours

    to Central PA’s only classical theatre

    • The New Gamut Theatre will host after-school programs, evening/weekend

    classes, and provide performance and presentation space for local

    community and arts groups
