Moving Forward …

We want to fulfill our ambition to move from a Primarily receiving venue to adding professional community productions and youth and children’s programs to truly become a ‘destination of choice’ for children, young people and community members of all ages. In so doing, we believe we will not only contribute to but also improve the quality and delivery of opportunities and work for our region and its future and current artists. In so doing, we aspire to create generations of people and their families who are engaged, integrated and active, artistically and socially.

“Enrich lives by making a place where OUR community creativity and inspiration thrive.”

Dear Friends and Neighbors!

Your consistent presence and support of The Prizery has been the cornerstone of our success these last 20+ years and now as we face down and eradicate a Pandemic, closures to our business and loss of our “normal” revenues your act of continued support has, perhaps for the first time in our history never been more important then right now!

After the challenge we have all faced since March of 2020 We are at a crossroads where financial resources are required.


NOW to continue:

  • Conservatory classes AND classes for adults
  • Re-opening the Gallery and Visual Arts Center
  • Producing free events for families and children like Trunk or Treat and Chillin with Santa on December 18
  • Planning a new full season of work
  • Paying the monthly fixed expenses so the lights and the work continues!


LATER so we can:

  • Hire dynamic creative staff dedicated to a full “reopening;”
  • Hiring education staff for full slate of Educational programs “reopening:”
  • Improving the “PRIZERY” Experience with upgraded systems, sound system, and hospitality amenities.


How you ask?

  • Make an end of year donation to The Prizery. Make that donation as large as you can afford at this critical time in our history.
  • Reach out to others you know who would like to support us. Ask them to join you in giving. Like us on Facebook and Instagram. Post Our Community – Our Prizery into your social media.  Tap into your network on behalf of The Prizery so that others can support and engage with us!


Anytime of course is great BUT on Giving Tuesday November 30thst at midnight and until 11:59 PM that day we launch Our Community – Our Prizery, and each and every dollar you donate will be matched. So… for example a $1000.00 donation becomes $2000.00 thanks to our generous benefactor  who has made the pledge to match every dollar up to $20,000.00. If we can raise $20,000 from all of you on that day that translates to $40,000!

Your generous gift will go directly to making sure we are here for the now and better than ever later!
