Hearts for the Arts Telethon


February 6, 2020

12:00 PM - 10:00 PM

We are very excited to present ten hours of entertainment, news, interviews and testimonials representing local actors, performers, directors ,choreographers and producers, all to raise money for three Evansville based Theatre Companies including:

STAGEtwo Productions
Evansville Civic Theatre
Children’s Theatre of Southern Indiana

Due to CoronaVirus mitigation efforts, 2020 was not a good year for local, regional and professional theatre companies who depend on ticket sales to remain operational. Each of our organizations has relied heavily on fundraisers and donations just to pay our expenses for the past ten months. We truly would not have survived this long without our dedicated patrons and friends. As grateful as we are for this financial support, we find ourselves in a very challenging holding pattern which will last for the next few months, as we eagerly await the promise of reopening when vaccines and herd immunity become a late spring - summer reality.

Hosted by Gretchen Ross, actress and WEHT/WETW’s Morning Anchor, Our Facebook Live Telethon, “Hearts for the Arts," will be a ten-hour virtual showcase featuring many of the actors whose performances you have enjoyed on our stages in the past several years! If you can, we’d like to ask you to donate the cost of a ticket to one of our shows though our paypal link or phone line which will be open on February 6th.

From 12:00 noon to 10:00 Pm on Saturday, Feb 6th you will be able to watch performances and testimonials from local actors as well as those who may now live outside our area. Observing all Covid safety measures, performances will be a combination of pre-recorded videos from actor’s homes, from the Evansville Civic stage and Live Streamed from STAGEtwo at Studio 321. Our afternoon will be strictly G and PG rated material with more mature selections beginning around 6:00 pm.



This show will be a live event held on Facebook Live.
