In the entertainment industry, where ticket sales are critical to financial survival, shutting theatre doors due to Covid-19 has had a serious impact on our community gem.

During these difficult and uncertain times, we ask that you remember the Academy Theatre, so we can light our stage again one day.

In the mean time, learn what an impact the Academy Theatre has had on so many lives in our community.
