Past Service Oriented Events and Programs
Shakespeare Summer Camp – The Elite Theatre program was honored to host a two week long Shakespeare Summer Camp, led by Managing Director Bill Walthall. This free program was open to members of the community ages 13 to 23, culminating in a fantastic production of works selected by the students.
The Elite Theatre Partnership with Teatro De las Americas – While it is not uncommon for The Elite Theatre Company to offer our space, we believe the work Teatro De Las Americas is doing is so important to our community that we have taken on the promotion of their work as if it were our own, and asked them back to work with us again and again. Teatro has also offered to help us in our own efforts as we strive to offer more Spanish language programming at The Elite as we move forward, we are lucky to have their friendship and support. Teatro has an amazingly talented team, and have been wonderful to work with. We are thrilled to see them opening up their own space in the coming year and are so happy to have them as a part of our family at The Elite.
Community Polling Location – The Elite Theatre Company is honored to continue to open our doors as a Community Polling Place for the members of our local Community.
Support for local Community Non Profit Organizations – The Elite Theatre Company is proud to offer our support to several local nonprofit organizations. With multiple donations of both flex tickets, and season passes The Elite believes that a generous tide raises all ships and believes that community and philanthropy work together for the betterment of us all.
