You can support your local Community Theatre in the following ways:

  • Capital Campaign - Lighting the Way to the Future
  • Community theatre offers a unique space of light and strength for many people. Encore Theatre has been such a beacon for multiple generations of the Greater Lima Community. This is a place to sense accomplishment and belonging. The productions here are but a small part of the legacy of learning and personal growth experienced by both those who step on the stage and behind the scenes. To continue our mission of providing the community an artistic outlet, rooted in theatrical education and tradition, the Theatre needs a new roof. Aging and water damage have taken their toll. Theatres typically require flat rooflines to accommodate the various rigging housed near the ceiling. Costly specialized materials are necessary for such rooflines.
    Just as the Ghost Light helps the actor or crew to navigate a darkened stage, so, Encore Theatre can continue to help new generations experience the joy of discovery.
  • Help us light the Ghost Light and Light the Way to the Future.
  • Since 1958, the Amil Tellers of Dramatics, Inc., a 501c3 non-profit corporation, has owned and operated the Encore Theatre at the corner of N. Shore Dr. and Collett Street in Lima.  The community we serve includes people of all ages and reaches out into all surrounding counties.The Amil Tellers Board of Trustees has established a Building Fund dedicated to the upkeep and improvement of our 65 year old building and our aging technical equipment.
