Community supports community theatre
While we have survived the economic hardships seen in the industry over the last several years, we continue to recover from the impact of the pandemic on the arts and culture sector. The support of our donors has been more important than ever during these challenging times. Since income from ticket sales covers only 35% of our operating costs, the Youngstown Playhouse relies on philanthropic support to provide community theatre as well as community outreach and educational programming.
As we approach our 100th Anniversary, The Youngstown Playhouse is committed to its mission of presenting quality theatre arts performances, providing educational initiatives, and establishing and maintaining community partnerships.
