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

  • Capital Campaign/Building Fund - 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 60 year old building and our aging technical equipment. Recently new stage lighting and drainage improvements have been made.  We are working to reduce the loan obtained to make these improvements and build a fund for needed repairs.


  • 2020-2021 Annual Campaign - Help continue the tradition of producing live theatre in the Lima area.  Consider making a donation to the Amil Teller's of Dramatics, Inc. which operates Encore Theatre.  All donations are tax deductible. Any level of giving is appreciated; levels above $25 will be acknowledged in our programs.  Consider donating at one of the following levels:

• Barney's Angels - $1,000 

• Producer - $500       

• Director - $250 

• Lead Performer - $100

  • Keep Encore Afloat - Save our Stage -  Encore Theatre, like all performing arts venues, is struggling to survive in 2020.  All performances and the related revenue streams to support the Theatre stopped in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Operating expenses to keep the Theatre alive, however, did not stop.  Mortgage payments, utilities, insurance, tax filings, maintenance and repairs continue to be our reality.  Please consider a donation to help cover the monthly operating expenses to keep live theatre in our community.

Thank you for supporting Amil Tellers of Dramatics! It is with community support such as yours that has allowed us to continue to produce live theatre since 1933.
