Frist Town Hall, circa 1910.jpg


Dear Friends,

The Ghent Playhouse is just two seasons away from celebrating its 50th anniversary!   This milestone also coincides with the 130th anniversary of the construction of the historic building that has been home to our theater since 1987.  As we near this momentous occasion, we find ourselves at a pivotal moment with respect to the building itself, which is badly in need of repair. 

Thanks to generous support and early donations the Playhouse Board has  launched The Ghent Playhouse Restoration Fund with a phase one goal to raise $50,000 by the end of the 48th season. Once funded, this phase of the campaign will repair and paint the building's extensive exterior trim work, clapboards and metal roof.  The Ghent Playhouse Board has always been dedicated to preserving and maintaining the integrity of this priceless architectural treasure, which has been the heart of the Ghent community since it was built to serve as the first Ghent Town Hall in the 1890s. 

Your contribution will help provide a prosperous and vibrant future for the Ghent Playhouse and the next generation of theatre-goers. We hope you will become a part of this exciting time by making a contribution today.
