We need you!

The Colonial Performing Arts Center delivers cultural experiences that connect us to one another, contribute to the region’s economy and inspire our community to action. In a normal year, The Colonial’s impact would look something like this:

  • Nearly 7,000 kids from 120 schools would participate in a curriculum-based performance or outreach activity – nearly 1,000 attending for free.
  • Our Community Scholarship programs would provide free access to a live performance for nearly 250 low-to-moderate income seniors and families.
  • More than 50,000 patrons would experience a variety of engaging and inspiring live events and film.
  • Our programming would generate roughly $4.5 million in direct and indirect spending in our local creative economy.
