We know the value of art in times of uncertainty.

Art reflects who we are. 

At EPAC, we always have and will continue to be fiercely devoted to telling these essential stories of connection, belonging and humanity. 

We ask that you support us in whatever way you can, as we navigate this moment, and work towards bringing these stories back to our stage.


During our 2020 season, we have many new goals and challenges to meet. We continue to expand our efforts to make EPAC fiscally sustainable so that future generations of artists and patrons can enjoy theater that matters.


Our annual fund goal for the year is our most aggressive to date – $300,000.


Ticket sales only cover about 60% of our yearly budget; the remaining 40% is dependent on grants, sponsorships, fundraisers and donations. Only with your help can we insure the continued existence and success of EPAC.

Future Generations Capital Campaign

The Future Generations Capital Campaign is the final building block of a journey that begin over fifteen years ago and transformed a small summer theater into a year-round meeting place for performers and audiences of all ages.

Your support will keep our theater alive for future generations to develop meaningful relationships that enrich our community culturally, socially and economically. Gifts to this project will lay the groundwork for the future of EPAC.


  • To increase educational opportunities for young people
  • To increase staff to improve operations
  • To pay off existing renovation debt

The realization of these goals will ensure the continued success and sustainability of EPAC so that is it here for generations to come.

With a one-time gift, or a pledge payable over time, you can show your commitment to our legacy of theater that matters. Please consider helping us meet our goal for the Future Generations Capital Campaign – we’re nearly there!
