Dear Friends and Supporters of the Smyrna Opera House,

      Today, more than ever before, we need your support as we navigate our way through the COVID-19 storm.  As you all know, we have had to cancel most of our shows for 2020 or reschedule them into 2021.  This has taken a major financial toll on the Opera House.  Since our new fiscal year began July 1st , we are around $40,000.00 in the red.  We cannot sustain this without some help from our friends.

      The Smyrna Opera House has always relied on public donations to bring our community the best programming and opportunities for our citizens to enjoy and explore the arts.  We must keep the cultural center of our community going.  The Smyrna Opera House has weathered many storms before, as it has stood on this corner for over 150 years.  I am sure our community will once again help us get through these exceedingly difficult times.

      In closing, I implore you to please give to this most worthy cause.  I would also like to thank our friends who have already given to this cause and have supported the few shows we have been able to have during this pandemic.  Without friends like you, this would not be possible.  The Smyrna Opera House is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.  Donations are tax deductible.

                                               Sincerely,

                                               Brian C. Hill

                                               Managing Director
