As with most theaters, ticket sales cover only a portion of our costs and our productions would not be possible without additional financial contributions from community members who value the arts.
There are many benefits to becoming a member beyond supporting the arts, including voting rights at our annual meeting, tickets to shows, flex passes and more. Please click here for more information.
Please help keep the mission of Schoolhouse alive by becoming a member today by making a tax-deductible membership donation.
