Heart the Art Campaign

In 2012, Theatre Horizon opened our new home in Norristown, creating a physical foundation for our award-winning art and impactful education programs. Now, building on that foundation, we must invest in the essential elements of our mission and artistry so that Theatre Horizon can sustain the excellent productions you have come to expect, and continue to use theater to educate the next generation of creative citizens.

In order to fulfill this strategic vision, we created our “Heart the Art” campaign, a three-year initiative (2015-2018) to help us meet three specific artistic goals:

  • Produce an imaginative and expertly performed musical in each of the next three seasons.
  • Create our first ever children’s show, an interactive experience for families in 2017/18.
  • Take care of our artists by increasing artists’ salaries and benefits by 74% over the next three years.

Thanks to our generous donors, we are thrilled to announce that as of December 31st 2017, we have raised over 100% of the $380,000 goal and are closing this successful artistic campaign.

  • Opportunity to have lunch or dinner with a Theatre Horizon artist and Artistic Director Erin Reilly after the show of your choice sometime during the campaign period.
