St. George Theatre Restoration, Inc. Overview
The St. George Theatre Restoration, Inc. (formerly the Richmond Dance Ensemble, Inc.) is absolutely committed to providing an authentic theatre experience for everyone. Originally formed to oversee the restoration of this historic theatre and to develop the theatre as a multi-purpose performance arts facility, the theatre also strives to promote programming that serves people of all ages, with & without disabilities; reflects the ethnic & cultural diversity of its audiences, and serves as an informational resource. It manages a performing arts series that features national tours and regional theatrical companies; arts education programs for students in grades Pre K - 12; hosts activities & events for other community-based nonprofit groups and connects local artists to audiences. The theatre’s summer arts & literacy program provides free dance training for children ages 9 - 18 from socially and/or economically challenged homes. Its popular ticket subsidy program operates in concert with social service agencies to offer under-served groups and individuals an opportunity to experience live theatre regardless of their ability to pay.
The popular appeal of its programs succeeds in getting people into the theatre, not just from Staten Island and the tri-state area but also from around the world.
