Support the Sherbino
The Ridgway Chautauqua Society is focused on fulfilling the vision of creating a sustainable gathering place with learning, creativity and culture at its core. Our initial effort is to revitalize and operate the historic Sherbino as a not-for-profit community “living room” and to host theater, film, music, lectures, community events and the performing arts. Your contribution will elevate and support our ongoing programming and help us meet the day-to-day expenses of operating our 100 year old building. Thank you.
The core values of the Sherbino Theater are rooted in our deep commitment to the Chautauqua principles of lifelong learning including the sharing of art, craft, and music while promoting intellectual and civic engagement. The organization believes in:
- Excellence in the promotion and teaching of the arts;
- Enrichment though spirited programming focused on entertainment, the arts, and community issues;
- Collaboration and partnerships with local, regional and national arts and cultural organizations to further our mission;
- Commitment to the sustainable development of our facilities and to act in an environmentally sound manner for the benefit of generations to come.
