I’m fundraising for The Everett Theater.

Lily has said since she was little she “wants to be in a movie” so we wanted to give her the opportunity to explore acting at her first Theatre summer Camp! 

About The Everett Theater

Mission: To foster and develop the arts in the geographic area of Middletown, Delaware encompassing the community’s culturally diverse resources and to preserve the historic nature of the Everett theatre. Our mission features two primary directions: the visual arts expressed through the Gilbert W. Perry Jr. Center for the Arts and the performing arts expressed through the Everett Theatre complex.

“Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference.”

The Everett is the Crown Jewel of Main St. Middletown. We are a comprehensive hub of activity supporting our community beyond the arts. With our collaborations for AIDS Delaware, Book Drives and Free Library, Eagle Scout Projects, Red Cross Blood Drives, Toys for Tots, Food Drives and our comprehensive Youth Development opportunities we strive to give back to our community.

We bring social justice issues to life on our stage with productions like 12 Angry Jurors, Rent, West Side Story, Bring It On, The Prom and more. Every season we use our platform to help amplify issues, open minds and start conversations while fostering a safe space of inclusion.

At The Everett, our Youth Development programming provides opportunities to *Mentor Up* students, providing life and job skills training from working the tech, financial literacy, leadership roles, organizational skills, time management, teamwork as well as a creative outlet. From our completely student run productions to having students actively sitting on committees from marketing to fundraising we support the growth and success of our youth. 

Our new college scholarship program recognizes students for academic success and service. We are committed to supporting education and our students as they transition into adulthood.
