For over 50 seasons now The El Paso Playhouse faithfully offers witty comedies, passionate dramas, gut wrenching, and moving performances by uniting volunteer community members from ages 8-80 to serve as Actors, Singers, Dancers, Choreographers, Musicians, Costume Designers, Seamstress', Prop Artists, Make-up Artist, Comedians, Set builders, Theatre Technicians, Custodians, Opening Night cooks, Servers, Concession stand attendees, stage hand assistants, Directors, Producers, & Secretaries. As a single mother of two high functioning Autistic children, my family and I may have started out as community patrons but we willingly and eagerly have chosen to stay on in Gratitude for this Nonprofit Organization because they found a place for each of us to serve together alongside with them.

If we could make any changes to this magnificently diverse nonprofit organization we would hope for increased ample well-lit parking space for patrons and out of town guests. As The Playhouse continues to grow their lightning system, sound boards, electrical wiring, two dressing rooms, restroom plumbing with large sinks for performers to safely clean off their make-up, auditorium seats, a mini cafe, and costume, prop & storage spaces are much needed for all they tirelessly give of themselves.
