From the CEO

A word from Chief Executive Officer Naima Kradjian…

WELCOME BACK to the Schorr Family Naima-with-Puppet_LRFirehouse Stage as we embark on our 6th season. The 2013-14 Season is awesome and all about having FUN!

If you are a new patron we are so happy to meet you.

We are so very grateful for the support from our many corporate sponsors and private underwriters for helping us bring world class entertainment to the Southern Tier at affordable prices. We are proud of the progress we have been able to make due to the outpouring of community support.

Look for even MORE JAZZ, COMEDY and MORE MUSIC this season along with shows that are provocative and inspirational…and speaking of inspiration, we will continue to support the Teen Jazz Project and will once again offer the April Florence Hamme Free Jazz Concert in celebration of National Jazz Appreciation Month.

We invite you to visit our ever evolving WEBSITE and our FACEBOOK page to get the latest scoop and take advantage of deals and opportunities. You can register to tour the Goodwill Theatre building to see just how fabulous it is!

The Schorr Family Firehouse Stage is the first performance venue of the Goodwill Theatre Performing Arts Complex and Professional Training Academy. Phase One will contain rehearsal halls, studios, classrooms, a spacious lobby AND THREE MORE performance venues. The Academy will teach post high school and graduate level courses in performance and backstage theater craft, partnering with BCC and BU. The academy will bring new vitality, jobs, revenue and creativity to our region. Call us if you want to find out more about it.
