ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

HISTORY

Harmony Theater began in 1994 as a performing arts collaborative for adults with disabilities, a population who needed community interaction activities.  A steering committee of professionals and volunteers came together with a common goal to create a performing arts program, proven to:

  • encourage positive self image and social interaction 

  • exercise creativity, imagination, and expression.   

This committee was made up of individuals with extensive experience in their fields of special education and human services.  The list of esteemed organizations includes Gwynedd-Mercy College, Indian Creek Foundation, Montgomery County College, Developmental Enterprises Corporation, St. Joseph's University, the YMCA of Ambler, local school districts,  and other service providers and county government offices.

A year of diligent work from the committee, student volunteers, community volunteers, family members, and of course the 30 actors culminated in the first  Harmony Theater production, Highlights from the Wizard of Oz, on May 6, 1995 on the campus of Gwynedd-Mercy College (now a University). 

In 2012, Harmony Theater, Inc. became an independent non-profit organization and currently holds rehearsals and  performances at the Episcopal Church of the Messiah, Rt 202, Lower Gwynedd, PA.

interaction and community connection. 

VALUES

    the performing arts

    and adventurous environment

    with communication

We are celebrating
25 years
on stage!

     Harmony actors are FANTASTIC!
     Our theater productions are improved by
artistic, technical, and stage enhancements!
     We purchased a professional stage and ramp!

     We have increased our community presence
and impact!

     Our retention rate for actors, directors, and board members is incredible!

     We have expanded our revenue streams in varied and innovative ways!

   We envision Harmony Theater as a
community theater space that would
use the arts as a connection between
this population and the surrounding
community. The space would include
a store front that would serve the
public and financially support the
theater activities.           
   Harmony Theater Inc. would provide employment opportunities for all
community members of all abilities. 
Ultimately, Harmony Theater would
provide social and economic prospects
for this population in a safe and
supportive environment that maximizes
the well-being of each person.
