A Venue for the Arts in the Heart of Bartow
By building out the first floor first, we are able to invite the public to enter the building and truly experience what the theatre will come to be. This allows us to engage more participation, hold small scale events, build a stronger community and ultimately, finish the theatre.
Seek Material/In Kind donations from companies involved in the construction of the project to help stretch our funds and allow us to move closer to our goals.
SPREAD THE WORD

The nature of construction projects requires large amounts of capital at one time. Small communities like ours are often dependent upon a few major benefactors to support larger endeavors such as this. We are making every effort to ensure that the underwriting of the Orpheum is spread across the community by creating this co-operative group of founding members.
Sharing is caring. The more people you tell, the more help we can receive.
