Project Update

PROJECT UPDATE: Through our grassroots efforts with individuals and local

foundations and corporations, we have raised $1.2 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 your legislators, tell them what Gamut means

to you, ask them to support Gamut Theatre’s request for RACP, and to voice that

support to their leadership and the Governor’s office. Need talking points? See our

easy steps below!

STEP 1: IDENTIFY YOUR LEGISLATORS

Visit www.legis.state.pa.us to find your legislators and get contact information for

your State Senator and State Representative

STEP 2: COMPOSE YOUR LETTER

• Talk about your experience at Gamut Theatre, what it means to you, and

what it will mean to have this new facility

• Ask your legislator to support Gamut Theatre’s request for RACP

(Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program) and to voice that support to

their leadership and the Governor’s Office (that last bit is very important!)

• 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 4/5 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

STEP 3: CONTACT THE GOVERNOR’S OFFICE

Since you now have that great letter, send one to Governor Tom Wolf!

Governor’s Correspondence Office; 508 Main Capitol Building; Harrisburg, PA 17120

STEP 4: LET US KNOW WHO YOU SENT YOUR LETTER TO!
Be sure to drop us a line here and let us know who you wrote to. Your support is important to us and we want to be sure we follow up with the appropriate State Senators and/or State Representatives. We want to make sure that your voice is heard!

STEP 5: MAKE A BIGGER IMPACT!

We know how much you love Gamut Theatre, but do they know? Get a group of 3-5

other Gamut supporters together and organize a face-to-face meeting with your

legislators to add more bang to your letters! Contact Melissa@GamutTheatre.org

for guidance!
