Heat the Chestnut Street Playhouse

Help Chestnut Street Playhouse HEAT UP!

This winter season has already showed us it is a mighty one, and unfortunately - our 20 year old furnace that heats the theater is broken!  

We need to replace the system.

This new system will control heating and cooling in the theater.  With 6 main stage shows and a busy season of events planned - we need to do this project ASAP!  But we need your help!  The estimated cost of this repair will total about $20,000.  

Please donate ANY amount to our cause!  We have made so many improvements to the facility since becoming Chesnut Street Playhouse in 2015: A new roof over our scene shop; the removal of the dilapidated planters at the front of the building; a beautiful new courtyard patio complete with engraved bricks of our supporters - we are doing our best to take care of the essentials so the building can stay operational and safe.....and this is a top priority.  We do not want pipes to burst or any further damage to be done to our beautiful, historic building now that we have made such amazing progress. 

Please help CSP reach our $20,000 goal so we can HEAT UP 2018!  

Thank you for your support of the arts!
