North Platte Giving Day is approching quickly. This year, we’re asking for your donatons as we prepare for another year of serving the North Platte area. 
The North Platte Community Playhouse ignites the imagination of artists and audiences of all ages through the performing arts at the historic Fox Theater, which anchors the arts districts, acts as a community gathering space, and provides economic impact through tourism. Thank you to #NorthPlatteGivingDay2020 and thank you to the community that continues to support this staple of the community!

Thank you to our wonderful sponsors who have helped us through this time of being shutdown. You help bring entertainment and culture to our community. 

On December 17, 1941 a train was scheduled to arrive with the Nebraska National Guard Unit Company D—local soldiers fighting in World War II. Family and friends gathered at the depot, excited to give Christmas gifts to their soldiers. When it became apparent it was not the expected troops on the train, but another company of soldiers, residents shared their gifts with the strangers. For the duration of the war, local residents provided food, magazines, and friendship to all the troops that passed through. Lincoln County Residents banded together during difficult times to share hope and hospitality.

In that same volunteer spirit, The North Platte Community Playhouse presents the Canteen Cabaret. The Cabaret is a variety show, with a different theme each month to lift your heart and cheer your spirits. Small casts of local residents will be performing—following social distancing protocol as set forward by the West Central Health District. Through these performances we hope to re-ignite the Canteen spirit—offering hope and cheer to those who are passing through dark times. We hope these six unique programs touch your heart. If you feel the Canteen spirit, please consider making a financial donation to the playhouse. If you are not in a position to donate financially, sharing these livestreams on your Facebook page costs nothing, and helps others to have the opportunity to watch the program.

We are FOR the community, BY the community

When you buy a theatre ticket, the cost of that ticket only covers 50% of the expenses associated with producing the play. Theatres are non-profit organizations which thrive off the generosity of their donors. As a subscription-based community theatre, the North Platte Community Playhouse relies on season/patron memberships, corporate and advertising benefactors, and contributions to sustain this beautiful historic treasure.  All contributions help to provide a stage for community actors to share their love of theatre, develop creativity in students of all ages through arts education classes, and preserve our historic theatre on the National Register of Historic Places.
