The Borough of Hellertown is pleased to announce a exciting partnership with long time local theater leaders Chad Miller, Kim and Patrick Mertz to produce an outdoor musical in June of 2021 in our very own Dimmick Park.
We are requesting that the community donate funds to support this production so that our community can enjoy live theater in a safe outdoor park. The show is being produced on a very limited production budget as the direction and production of the show is being donated by Chad, Kim and Patrick who have decades of theater and performance experience.
However, we are asking for the community to support this production as the production which has a budget between $2,000 to $3,000 and is needed to pay for the rights equipment and professional musicians. If any excess funds are raised those funds will be earmarked for future live performances in Dimmick Park.
Donations/Checks can be can be made payable to The Borough of Hellertown with a note Musical 2021. These can be mailed to 685 Main Street Hellertown PA 180555
