2013-14 Membership Drive
With a little help from our friends.
Our 5th Membership Drive has a goal of 500 members, because 58% of our operating budget comes from our members. That money supports our talented staff & underwrites over 165 events, so it's a great investment in the life of your community, but you have to play your part! Renew your membership, or become a new member of Town Hall Theater today!
And here's a special new benefit for our members:

We’d be lost without our volunteers.
They build sets, run the follow spots, stuff envelopes, help with fund-raising, and generally keep us going!!
There’s a special need for “front-of-house” volunteers, who serve as ushers and ticket takers for every production. They get a very special benefit: a free ticket to the show.
Please fill out the form below and join the volunteer team at THT.
Remember THT with a Bequest
& Ensure the Sustainability of our Landmark Theater.
“An early community player, both as an actor and director, I shared the dream that one day the Players would have a theater they could call ‘home’. The Town Hall Theater is the answer to that dream. I hope my bequest will help that dream survive and prosper.”

The Town Hall Theater Endowment
The restoration and revival of the Town Hall Theater was an astonishing accomplishment for our small Vermont community. Sustaining THT through future years, however, is perhaps an even greater challenge. The Town Hall Theater Endowment, established in 2012, seeks to give THT a measure of financial security as it extends its mission into the future.
Executive Director Douglas Anderson comments: "There's a certain amount of well-earned euphoria that comes with saving and restoring an old building like this. But we can never think that the job is done. Maintaining our 1883 structure is a constant chore, as major and minor repairs are always needed, and just making sure the building is heated and lit is an expensive responsibility. Our job is to make sure this landmark is open and sound and thriving a hundred years from now, and the endowment is a key piece of that puzzle."
The Town Hall Theater Endowment is managed by the Vermont Community Foundation. For more information contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 802 388-1436.
