Support the Burford


Thank you for your support of the Arkansas City Area Arts Council and Burford Theatre Arts.  We invite you to become a member of our organization.

We are honored that the Burford Theatre is a meaningful part of your life. The support you show by attending our events and being a member is important to us! The “us” we refer to is not just the employees of our theater, members of the board, or the volunteers who make it work—we are also referring to you, our loyal patrons of the Burford, for the Burford Theatre really is your theatre. The programming at the Burford isn’t random; it’s selected because experience has taught us that these are the types of shows and events you want to see. In that interest, we’re always open to your feedback and suggestions about future programming.

One of the most often heard comments in the Burford lobby after a show is, “I can’t believe I just saw this performer in Arkansas City!” Since its re-opening in 2016 after a $8 million renovation, the Burford has presented some incredible artists from around the country. These artists love to perform in our beautiful historic theater and sign our historic walls in the green room.

It’s been an interesting time for our venue, and for venues like us across the country, as we continue to navigate through COVID and it’s impacts.  For us, it’s had a direct impact on our income.  The Burford is a not-for-profit organization, and we rely on your tax-deductible donations to continue bringing you the kinds of exciting entertainment you’ve come to expect from us.

Please consider helping us protect this valuable cultural and educational treasure that contributes so much to the quality of life in Cowley County. 100% of your tax deductible membership contribution will go to support the annual operations of the Burford Theatre.
