A Message from the Mysterium Theatre:
“Two years ago, we moved to this wonderful historic building and we are doing renovations and putting on between 15-21 shows each season. We just got hit with some pretty big expenses and the rights to several shows coming up are larger than we had hoped. We have some fantastic folks both on and off stage that have come along for the adventure of creating art that the community desperately needs. We are also developing an after school program to have the future generation fall in love and participate in the arts – singing, dancing, acting on set, lighting design and much more. At the moment we need an immediate 2,500.00.” Taken from the website
