Help Theatre Five-One Help The Community

Donation protected
Theatre Five-One is a dream project to help keep the memory of Erin Dinklenburg alive.
Erin suffered from Friedreich's ataxia, a is a rare, inherited, degenerative disease that damages the spinal cord, peripheral nerves and the cerebellum. This meant that she was confined to a wheel chair most of her life which inhibited her from performing on stage in the shows she loved.
Theatre Five-One wants to change all of that. To help those who have a love for theatre, on stage or back stage, no matter their ability. We are an educational theatre, so whether you are interested in watching the audition process or the rehearsal process, we are open.
Theatre Five-One provides classes for those interested in getting involved as well as different types of shows to allow for anyone to participate, be it at an improv show, a children's show, or an adult show. Help support what Erin loved.
Unfortunately Erin passed away a few years ago but she is well remembered and we want to keep it that way with a theatre named after her. Erin was born on May 1st.
We cannot do it alone and rely solely on donations from you. We are looking to purchase right's to various shows as well as set up a permanent home in our own place. Your donations will help turn that into a reality.
Thank you for your support.
