Bell Tower Theater
"To provide a high-quality and dynamic community program of live theater, education and events for residents of and visitors to the Tri-State Area."
For Great Give Day 2019, we are raising funds to support our youth theater programs, Kids Take the Stage and the Free Summer Musical Program. These funds will benefit hundreds of kids and thousands of audience members in 2019.
We make our space available to local organizations such as the Dubuque Dance Studio so they have a place to perform their work. We often offer the theater space, props and costumes free or at a reduced cost to groups including the Dubuque Community Schools, Northeast Iowa Community College and Loras College. We regularly work with local youth, family and senior organizations to provide free tickets to those who cannot afford to attend. Each year 21,000 people attend our plays and participate in our programs. These patrons are of all ages, ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds and include residents of the Dubuque Area and tourists from across the country.
