Porthouse Capital Campaign

You are here

Help Porthouse Theatre shine even brighter! Porthouse Theatre has launched a $1 million capital campaign to provide a number of significant improvements including a new box office, expanded bathrooms and customer service area, a new roof for the theatre, and a new parking lot. Thanks to the generous donation of $250,000 from the Gregory Hackett Family Foundation, the campaign will coincide with Porthouse Theatre's 50th Anniversary Season in 2018. We invite you to become part of this very important campaign for Porthouse Theatre's continued success.
