The Arts Project is funded 100% by the Cherry Grove Community, past and present. We receive no grants or subsidies, and are completely self-supporting through our own contributions. There are several ways you can help keep the APCG follow-spot beaming.

Become a Member. Membership is $50 per year for adults and $10 per year for juniors. We also have Gold and Silver Member Levels, described on our Membership Application Form.

  • For your membership, you get regular correspondence and community updates via mail and email – if desired.
  • Discounted tickets to most of our events.
  • Priority ticket purchase and entrance to our Art Show.
  • Attendance at our Annual Membership Party on Memorial Day weekend, where we elect our Homecoming Queen for the Season.
  • The satisfaction of being a part of our long-term established community group that has flourished since 1948, and now has been historically established (1948) as the oldest LGBT Theatre in America, and possibly the world.

Attend our events. We produce and sponsor events all throughout the year that are entertaining and high camp: Theatrical Extravaganzas; Art Show Exhibits; Casino; Parties; “Kid Camp” as well as many individual interest events: Al-Anon; Yoga; CG Gay Pride Parade and Fireworks; Church Services; and Bingo to name a few!

Advertise in our Theatre Playbill. We publish a playbill for each show we produce, that incudes ads from both businesses and individual well-wishers.

Donations. The APCG is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization and therefore all donations are tax-deductible, to the extent as permitted by law. We receive individual donations, sponsorship of special events; and bequests.

Volunteer. This is perhaps the most vital and heart-felt means of support – YOU! We are all volunteers: the Board of Directors, the artists, the ushers, the bartenders, the performers (with a few outside exceptions), the Casino dealers; and so on. Come be a part of Cherry Grove History.
