Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1) Continue the historic preservation of the Egyptian Theatre.
2) Be a center for the visual and performing arts for the region.
3) Provide a home for community groups to host events and bring the community together.
4) Increase the quality of life in the region through increased access to the arts.
5) Through the arts provide community and educational outreach.

1) Through every building maintenance or upgrade project focus on protecting the historical integrity of the building.
2) Continually increase the number and variety of arts programs offered.
3) Offer non-profit rental discounts for groups to utilize the theatre, provide community grants that help reduce the cost of using the Egyptian Theatre for non-profit groups, and actively reach out to community groups to find new ways to partner together.
4) The arts bring people together and through successful programming the Egyptian Theatre has the ability to positively affect the quality of life and provide immense economic impact for the area.
5) Provide free historical tours of the Egyptian Theatre to any educational or youth groups in the community. Actively work to increase the number of school shows and field trip opportunities for schools and home school groups throughout the area.

Our organization is the strongest it has ever been since created in 1978. Through strong organization policies and structure our organization is positioned to accomplish our goals. Our board of directors represents many different sectors throughout the community and contains active engaged members.

Our staff is skilled and we have very little turnover which represents the dedication our staff has to the organization.

Through recent increased efforts in fundraising our organization is becoming better equipped to expand programming and community impact.

Our organization is actively involved in the community and has a large network of support.

In recent years a lot of our focus has been on strengthening the organization so that we are better equipped to execute on expanded programming and projects. Through diligent behind-the-scenes work our organization is much stronger now and ready to start dramatically increasing the programming we provide, community involvement, community outreach, and taking the historic Egyptian Theatre to new heights.
