A wonderful community like Kerrville has many things that make it great. People who visit will find many reasons to fall in love with our little corner of the Hill Country: fabulous vistas, outstanding outdoor activities, a highly respected University, excellent health care services; the list is long.
Among the “quality of life” aspects we all enjoy, a thriving arts scene is one of the highlights. Very few communities the size of Kerrville can boast a fine-arts complex on the scale and with the quality of the Kathleen C. Cailloux City Center for the Performing Arts. This is important to visitors, and the City Center sees nearly half of its ticket sales go to people visiting from outside of the local Zip Code.
It is also important to local residents, and those considering becoming local residents. The University and Health Care system mentioned above rely on the ability to show off a welcoming, exciting community as they seek to recruit the best possible additions to their staffs. And, with an economic impact estimated to exceed a million dollars per year, The City Center is a major contributor to the health of our local merchants as well.
Like managers of performing arts centers around the country, Playhouse 2000 is a non-profit corporation that owes its existence to the support of the local community. In an average year, after ticket sales, hall rentals and moderate support from The City of Kerrville, nearly a quarter of P2K’s annual operating budget comes through the generosity of individuals, businesses and foundations who believe that a healthy arts scene is important.
We need the support of people just like you! Please consider the ways you can help keep Playhouse 2000 healthy, and the doors of the Kathleen C. Cailloux City Center for the Performing Arts open to all of the experiences this community deserves.
