The Gallery Theatre was formed in 1966 as a volunteer community theatre organization: including the board of directors. We believe that nurturing, developing, and providing an opportunity for talented locals is an important part of their lives; and of ours. From a legal perspective, our applications and licenses to perform copyrighted works are based on non-professional without pay.

The theatre is owned by a non-profit 501 C-3 corporation named: The Gallery Theatre, Inc. Day-to-day management is the responsibility of the executive director, who is employed by the board of directors. The board of directors are responsible for the financial health and setting policies and procedures to insure the organization is operated in a manner consistent with its mission statement in the Articles of Incorporation.

The Gallery Theatre is available for rental during times when we are not in rehearsals or performances during our season. Contact us to inquire if our schedule can accommodate your event and the cost to lease the theatre, lighting, and sound systems.
