The Story

Our time to raise these funds is short!  If we can raise funds by the end of April, we access $100,000 in added funds to renew our theatre.

Davenport Junior Theatre is in its 65th year of making theatre "For Kids, By Kids."  For generations we have carried the belief that every child deserves to learn to communicate clearly, confidently and creatively.

Our theatre was last renovated from 1978-81.  Mary Fluhrer-Nighswander (founder), Leone Bredbeck (co-founder, original Showtime Pal), and countless volunteers, parents and students spent over a decade raising the funds to find a home for DJT.   

For 35 years we have made use of the theatre seats and other improvements of the past.  The time has come to again renovate the theatre for the next 35 years of DJT kids!

We have already raised nearly $112,000 towards the renovation through grants, pledges and $70,000 from the City of Davenport.  Our goal is to raise the remaining $40,000 needed to complete key renovations.  And we need it complete by April 2017.

We plan to install new carpet, make key structural repairs, repaint the entire theatre and install 350 brand new theatre chairs!!

Please help us ensure a home for America's second oldest children's theatre.  With any luck our new seating will last another 35 years when we celebrate our 100th anniversary!  Thanks for your support in helping us ensure the arts reach all kids!
