If the walls of the State Theatre of Boyertown could talk, we’re sure many stories would be told from its’ 100 year history. But what’s happening now at the Theatre is what we want to share with everyone.
Live entertainment fills the Theatre every Friday evening beginning at 7 pm. Bands from around the Tri-County Area have been, and continue to be, scheduled to perform. These quality musicians bring their best performances to help the Theatre continue to grow. Proceeds from each concert benefit the State Theatre’s restoration project. We’re working to preserve this little piece of Boyertown history and appreciate all the support that we’ve been given from both the patrons and the performers. It is as they say; “a work in progress” and the Theatre cannot continue to improve without the support of these bands and our community.
On the second Friday of every month we bring our LIVE at the State Christian Concerts to our stage. Performers from as far away as Philadelphia and the Lehigh County and as close as our own Boyertown Community come to the Theatre to be part of this special concert series. It gives us great pride to be able to welcome members of area Churches and Charity organizations who just enjoy being together and listening to “wholesome family music with a Christian flair”! Ten-percent of all ticket sales are donated to the feature performer’s Church or Charity on these special evenings.
We’ve also found a certain “niche”, if you will, in helping local non-profit organizations and individuals with their fundraising efforts. We specialize in designing an event specific to the needs of the organization, whether it is music, comedy, or specialized entertainment, we bring it all together for the fundraising organization and all that is required of them is to promote and sell tickets.
Coming this fall will be our new “Rock the Theatre” weekday concert series that will feature area Jr. and Sr. High School performing bands looking for a safe, non-threatening venue to showcase their talent. This concert series will kick off on Tuesday evening, September 3, 2013 at 6 pm. Interested bands should contact the Theatre now to secure their concert date.
We’d also like to remind you that Feature Movies continue to be our staple at the Historic State Theatre of Boyertown. Though the lack of digital technology is beginning to take its’ toll on scheduling movies, we’re working hard to bring in current movies as quickly as possible.
So, with everything going on at the Theatre you might be wondering how you can keep up-to-date on all the special events and movies. We invite you to visit our web site at www.StateTheatreBoyertown.com , follow us on Facebook, and Twitter and sign up to receive our e-mail notifications. Of course, all of our events and movies are posted at the Theatre itself.
We’d like to reiterate our sincere appreciation to our patrons from the Boyertown and surrounding areas who continue to visit the Theatre and to our performing Friday evening bands whose persistent promotions of their concerts help us to remain The Historic Theatre of Boyertown!
