Our sincere thanks to the Worthington Lodge LLC for the in-kind donation of (80) 1950s theatre seats and rigging valued at $25,500.

Though our shows are self-sustaining, we need grants and donations to pay our overhead expenses. Often donors and foundations are reluctant to give for operating costs so we asked some of our donors why they chose to give to MTVarts:

"The world is a complicated place, and there's a lot of division between people. The performing arts tend to unify people in a way nothing else does. We feel the MTVarts has a crucial impact on our economy and are an important catalyst for learning, discovery, and achievement in our community."  ...Judge Otho Eyster and Carol Garner

"The work of MTVarts makes our community a better place to live. Its shows and events are important not only as entertainment, but as education, and culture, and a place and time for fellowship. I take pride in our local arts community. If we want local programing that we can continue to be proud of, the community must support the arts by attending shows and events and by sponsoring the organizations that put them on."  ...Clint Bailey, Critchfield, Critchfield, & Johnston, Ltd.
