2013 annual report


Tyler "Ty" Mackay Harman November 30, 1981 – April 26, 2013

“A Million Times” A million times we’ve needed you, A million times we’ve cried. If love alone could’ve saved you, You never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, In death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place, No one else will ever fill. It broke our hearts to lose you, But you didn’t go alone. Part of us went with you, The day God took you home.


a message from the chair and executive director

Can you believe The Colonial Theatre will be celebrating its 90th birthday on January 29, 2014 and its 20th anniversary as a non-profit, community-based performing arts center since 1993! Looking back over these years some of the greatest performing artists have graced its stage. In the past were Thornton Wilder, Maude Adams performing Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, and Amelia Earhart lecturing on air travel, and more recently Garrison Keillor and Bill Cosby. Beyond world-class performers, one the most rewarding aspects of our shared legacy are the more than 7,000 children that have come to The Colonial each year for the past decade, some for the first time, to experience the magic of live professional theatre. They love it! We are pleased to report, despite the difficult economic times, we met our financial goals for last season because of the generous support of our community, our members, our audiences, our donors and our corporate sponsors. We could not have reached our objectives without the commitment of our dedicated Staff and volunteers. Looking to the future we are exploring every option to continue the proud tradition of providing our audiences, our region, its family’s and its children the opportunity to enjoy inspiring live performances and the best in independent cinema. With your help, we can achieve our Vision to “be the model regional performing arts center, exciting, educating and challenging audiences of all ages.” Thank you for your support and commitment. The Board, the Staff and the many volunteers look forward to getting to know each of you while you enjoy The Colonial Experience.
