The Schuster Center (celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2013) is is owned and operated by Victoria Theatre Association/Arts Center Foundation, one of Dayton’s premier not-for-profit arts organizations. Victoria Theatre Association presents more than 300 performances for all ages each year, operates and maintains the Schuster Center, the historic Victoria Theatre and Metropolitan Arts Center (home of The Loft Theatre) for the benefit of the community and the arts organizations that use them.
As a a not-for-profit organization, Victoria Theatre Association receives funding from a variety of diverse public, corporate, individual and private sources. Ticket sales account for only 80% of Victoria Theatre Association’s needs. The rest–more than $1.5 million each year–comes from private support.
We invite you to invest in the Schuster Center and join the family of contributors who have set the stage. Over the years, residents of the Miami Valley have proven their commitment to the arts. Now, with the spectacular architecture and multi-faceted programming of the Schuster Center this tradition will continue, showing our belief in the future and in the important role the arts play in everyday life.
