Support the Arts

Help Us Keep Theatre Arts Alive in Northwest Indiana!

We are excited to introduce you to "Premier Theatre" of Chesterton, a new division of Premier Performance that we have launched to develop and produce theatre performance opportunities in our area. We believe theatre should be inclusive to actors of all ages, particularly children. Throughout the year we offer our signature Broadway Bootcamp theatre classes; these Broadway-style intensives are for interested theatrical youth. In the class, students learn the basics of theater and performance while growing life-skills like teamwork, responsibility, and respect for others. At the end of the process, students present a full-scale musical performance for the community. Ultimately through our programming, we strive to create confident and successful future leaders.

As a new theatre company, Premier Theatre depends on the generous support of the community. We hope that with the help of contributions by other arts and community-centered individuals and organizations, we can continue to provide our programming to all interested actors. To continue bringing to fruition an exciting theatre season, we’re asking you to consider giving to Premier Theatre. Your contribution will enable us to showcase some of Northwest Indiana’s most talented and hard-working young actors. In return for your generous contribution, your name will be recognized in our show Playbill and website as a generous contributor to the arts.
