  1. Hello, I was wondering if there was an opportunity to play for the orchestra pit. I play trombone and I’ve played for many years. I’ve played with the Upper Darby Mainstage productions for the past 3 years or so. If there would be any opportunity for me to play with the theater (even as a substitute), I would love to. If there’s someone that I could speak with about this, that would be great. Thank you for your time!

  2. Hello – I wanted to ask Media Theatre if they would be willing to assist our fire company out again this year with a ticket donation? Prospect Park Fire Company is a non-profit (45-0580930) 100% Volunteer department. On Saturday May 5th we will be holding our annual awards banquet. This event serves as a thank you to our members and their families and recognizes their services over the year. At this event we raffle items off as a way to fundraise. I think a nice dinner in Media along with theatre ticket is a wonderful prize! Thank you so much for you generosity in the past and for your consideration.
    Michelle
