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 artistry so 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 are in the middle of a three-year fundraising campaign called Heart the Art to help us meet three specific artistic goals:

  • Produce an imaginative and expertly performed MUSICAL in each of the next three seasons (2016-2018)
  • Create our first-ever CHILDREN’S SHOW, an interactive experience for families premiering in 2017/18
  • Take care of our ARTISTS by increasing our expenditures on artists’ salaries and benefits by 74% over the duration of the campaign

To fund this work we must raise $300,000 by June 2018 in addition to our regular Annual Fund.

Campaign Benefits

Donors who contribute towards this three-year campaign will receive the following benefits:

  • Enjoy all lower-tiered benefits, plus:
