Make a Pledge
We need your help to reach our goalMake a Pledge
Campaign Goal $2,500,000
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!
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
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!
STEP 1: COMPOSE YOUR LETTER
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
• 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
