The year 2020 has already proven to be one we will remember for years to come!
Decisions for cancellations and temporary closing of our community arts center were made in the best interest of our members, staff, and community, but have greatly affected our budget. We ask that you consider supporting our mission and facility to allow us to continue our performing arts programs and experiences for the Moshannon Valley community by making a donation. Our plans for the year changed from our original intentions, and INNOVATION seems to be our motto moving forward:
IGNITE Youth Theatre regretfully cancelled its planned summer musical, Matilda.
ILLUSIONS Dance Studio, after a brief hiatus, continued dance classes online, and has summer dance camps underway under new social distancing requirements.
ILLUMINATE Music Instruction is anxious to resume with expanded options for voice and instrumental lessons.
IMAGINE Arts & Crafts added “kits” for sale with instructions for several projects including knitting, sewing, locker hooking, and more, and hosts a weekly online craft night.
During the quarantine, our wonderful volunteers have continued to make improvements to our location in Osceola Mills, which, as you know, has allowed us to expand our programming, grow our staff, and increase partnerships with other community art, music, and theatre organizations. This year, we also welcomed new board members and have organized several board committees to help us move forward.
Our mission is to present high-quality performing arts experiences for the cultural education, entertainment, and inspiration of the Moshannon Valley communities; to foster and develop artistic talents and skills of all participants; and to encourage public appreciation of the theatre arts and to develop future audiences and supporters of the arts. We are just reinventing the way we do so!
We have two opportunities for giving, including: one-time donations made to support our ongoing Mission, as well as our IMAGINE, INSPIRE, INVEST Community Capital Campaign for the Arts.
