We are excited to announce the creation of the Shenandoah Summer Music Theatre Living Legacy Endowment Fundpresent made today for the future of Shenandoah Summer Music Theatre (SSMT). The endowment provides SSMT the means to pursue important educational and outreach programs, competitive artist and administrative compensation, and production enhancements.

This announcement is made possible with special thanks to Libby and Will Ingham for believing in the importance of this endowment and for making the initial and very generous donation of $25,000 to establish the fund. Libby Ingham ‘13 is an alumna of Shenandoah University and SSMT; Will Ingham is Shenandoah University Professor Emeritus, Theatre, and served as technical director for Shenandoah Summer Music Theatre for over twenty years.

Our goal is to raise $100,000 in 2023! To reach this goal, we invite you to support this important mission by contributing at one of the following levels:
