URGENT: Like many non-profit organizations, we have suffered a devastating loss of revenue as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Swift Creek Mill Theatre today and help us "keep the lights on!" Your gift will be matched, two to one, by an anonymous donor who, like you, wants to see us reopen again in the future! There is no better time to give and no greater need than now! 











Swift Creek Mill Theatre has been a Richmond and Tri-Cities institution since 1965. We currently produce five Mainstage Season shows and three or more Youth Theatre productions annually, including world-premiere musicals and one-of-a-kind children’s shows developed and written by local professionals. The playhouse also hosts youth theatre camps.

We’ve come a long way since the Callahans, the Rubins, and the Richardsons took a 300-year old grist mill and turned it into an intimate space for the production of so many splendid theatrical experiences. More than four decades and 300 productions later, the Mill is still going strong in its historic location.

Producing high-quality professional theatre requires an enormous commitment of resources, and ticket sales cover only part of the costs. It is only through the generous support of individuals, corporations, and foundations that we are able to keep ticket prices affordable. Please consider making a generous contribution to Swift Creek Mill Theatre.

Sometimes community members and business owners offer support in other ways as well, be it volunteering, donating office supplies, printing, services, and other things that simply help make The Mill better.

Please call Jennifer Procise at (804) 748-5203 for more information about corporate giving, our Annual Fund Campaign, and your specific volunteering skills.
