Do you need a way to raise funds for your organization?
Consider a “Fun-Raiser” with Electric City Playhouse!
A “FUN-Raiser” happens when an organization purchases a Thursday evening show at a set price. This private event is held on a Thursday prior to our regular Friday through Sunday performances. The organization then sells the seats for the night and collects the proceeds for their own causes. They are also allowed to sell their own food items, bake sale, raffle, silent auction, etc.
The cost to reserve a Fun-raiser with ECP is…
$600 for a Musical
$500 for a Non-Musical
Throughout its time, local organizations have joined forces with ECP to hold private events. They have generated over $20,000 for their own causes. Some of these organizations include: ELKS, Rotary, PEO, Humane Society, Free Clinic, and various churches/spiritual organizations. This year we are looking to expand our offerings from solely non-profit organizations to schools and businesses wishing to raise funds, or hold private events.
How to participate:
-Look over the ECP 2018 Season of Shows; (Dec 14, 2017 is still available for A Christmas Memory, directed by Jimmy Burdette & produced by Mary Nickles)
-Pick one that connects with your group via theme or timeframe

On the day of the show:
-Previously you have made arrangements with ECP for arrival time to begin your set up in the lobby. Organization-specific tables, goods, auction items, raffles, sales, etc. are the
responsibility of the organization. ECP does have a limited amount of equipment that your party is welcome to use, based on availability.
-ECP will have a House Manager on-site to unlock the doors and to assist as needed.

The Diary of Anne Frank
April 6-15, 2018
Director Scott Gibson
Adapted from Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl, this story takes us to the Nazi occupied Netherlands, where a straightforward Jewish girl is in hiding with her family. The story follows the day to day life, and sometimes the humorously lighthearted escapades of the Frank family, in the attic where they lived in hiding for two years. Frances Goodrich & Albert Hacket have fashioned a wonderfully sensitive tender drama out of a real-life legacy left to us by the spirited Anne Frank.
