Our 2019 Raffle has officially ended. Thank you to all who participated in this fundraising event!

We are pleased to announce that our New York City Broadway Raffle reached its 300 ticket limit over the weekend thanks to your support!  Due to the fact that we hit the limit before the final raffle deadline of September 16th, we decided to draw early for the prize.  

We send congratulations to the winner, Robert Riter! Our Raffle Concierge, Jeff Kingsbury, will be working with the winner to book this fabulous trip.

We thank everyone who participated in this fundraising event. Even if you weren't the lucky winner this time, it cannot be overstated how important your support is to the Black Hills Playhouse. Here are just some of these things that the funds raised can do for us:


  • $24,000 = 9 Interns Funded

  • $24,000 = Royalty Payment for one musical

  • $24,000 = 1/2 of the cost of producing performing arts camps for kids

  • $24,000 = Support for theatre inclusive of people with disabilities

  • $24,000 = 2/3 of production supplies needed for sets, costumes, lights, sound in a season

  • $24,000 = summer utility costs (electric, sewer, garbage, propane)

  • $24,000 = 2/3 cost of hiring professional directors and designers for a season


The Playhouse thrives because of people like you who believe in our work and support our efforts. Once again, thank you so much for playing and keep checking our website, Facebook, and monthly Buffalo Bulletin email messages to stay up to date about our 75th Season events and performances!
