The Barnstormers is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization that relies on the generosity of its patrons who support its programs including: professional summer theatre, Young Actors Project, and the theatre’s availability to other local performing arts groups in the fall and spring.
Like most theatres nationwide, ticket sales account for a portion of income needs, so every gift to The Barnstormers is greatly appreciated. Donors are vital in each and every production. Those who contribute prior to May 31 are recognized in our season program.
Theatre can’t live on love alone!
