Help others find wonder in the arts. Become a Mattie Kelly Arts Center usher or docent.
Your support helps us to make a difference in the lives of our community.
While the Mattie Kelly Arts Center rivals many large-city venues in terms of entertainment and facilities, we are proud to be an integral resource to the surrounding community. Our show season, which includes nationally touring companies and celebrities, annually attracts thousands to the region, promoting economic growth in the local town while simultaneously giving access to Broadway and other guest artist productions to our local patrons. As art and music programs have started to slowly fade from public school programs, the Mattie Kelly Arts Center continues to provide educational art and music programs for youth. Adults also have ample opportunity for involvement through our volunteer programs. As a nonprofit organization, the Mattie Kelly Arts Center cannot thrive on ticket sales alone. In order to fulfill our commitment to our community to provide high quality entertainment and programs, we need your financial support.
