The Next Act: Civic Theatre's Capital Campaign
It's Time to Act.
The 90-year-old 19th Street Theatre, while sound, must be brought up to code and restored if it is to continue to serve as a premiere destination for live theatre in the Lehigh Valley. Despite its aging facility, Civic has experienced solid programming growth with each season exceeding previous attendance records. Current box office projections anticipate more than 45,000 tickets will be sold in the coming year through both theatre and film programs. Additionally, hundreds of students enroll in Civic Theatre School, which is usually operating at its maximum capacity. Countless volunteers consider Civic their creative home, regularly sharing their talents on stage and behind the scenes.
