Kanawha Players Theater is the official state theater of West Virginia and is the second longest community theater in the United States. If we survive we will be going into our 93rd season! It would be a shame for WV to lose another theater and especially one with such a rich history that has touched so many.

It is no secret that KP has struggled for years to get back on it’s feet both financially and as an organization. While we have made great strides in rebuilding ourselves. The harsh winter, water disaster in WV, and a lack of heating and cooling in our building has crushed us financially.

We are making a last stand to save our building and very likely the organization itself. We desperately need to raise $7,000 by July 1st to get our mortgage caught up and utilities paid off from the winter.
