In the darkness, a light shines.

Four County friends and family, We hope this message finds you all safe, healthy, and supported.

In these uncertain times, we are all comforted by staying close to what matters to us. While we are counting down the days until we can all be together again at the theater, it is important, now more than ever, that we remain connected as a community, as a family.

While the theater may be dark, a light continues to shine. A light that is fueled by the spirit of this incredible theatrical community. A light that is fueled by 47 years of love, laughter, art, theater, and unforgettable memories. With your support, we can keep the light shining.

We hope you will consider making a gift to help Four County Players stay strong through this crisis.
With the cancellation of the remainder of your 47th theatrical season and uncertain times ahead for many, your gift of any size means so much to this community. Whether it be the price of a theater ticket or a larger gift, your generosity and support will help ensure that the light continues to shine and Four County Players will reopen the red doors, stronger than ever.

It’s only Intermission. And everyone loves a great second act.
