Hedgerow: A Season of Love & Generosity

“Nothing puts me in the holiday mood more quickly than seeing A Christmas Carol at the Hedgerow Theatre.”

Dear Friend, 

We are in the midst of our 21st season presenting Nagle Jackson’s stage version of the classic and we are thrilled once again to be the bearer of Dickens’ timeless message reminding us of the superlative value of love and generosity.  

2013 has seen some stand out events and achievements for Hedgerow, including our 90th anniversary in November (yes – 90 years as the longest continually operating repertory theatre in America!), and outreach into surrounding communities including 2 residency programs in Chester schools and a significant role in the conservation and renovation of Deshong Park.  

Perhaps most excitingly, our new Welcome Center plans are well underway  This new glassed-in entrance slated for completion by the spring will provide a bright and convenient entry to our theatre, easily accessible to all.

Your support directly funds the core elements of our mission:

Productions – Hedgerow exists to create art and provide entertainment. Your gift will directly support the creation of original sets, costumes, lighting and sound design

People – we are committed to employing exceptional actors, directors, designers, and administrative staff

Place – we pledge to maintain and continue to restore the historic Hedgerow Theatre building, celebrating its role in Rose Valley’s history and ensuring its place in future 

Education Initiatives – your gifts help subsidize scholarships for students to our classes and summer camps, production tours to public schools, and our unique internship and residency program for aspiring theatre professionals

As 2013 winds to a close, we want to emphasize how important your support is to our theatre.   If you would like to learn how make a donation, please follow this linkYou are a partner in our success. Thank you!
