Townies Pizzeria recently presented a $1,000 check to Amelia Community Theatre for their youth summer camp. Celebrating its most successful year in business since its founding, Townies has been dedicated to supporting the arts, education, sports, environmental programs, military veterans, and first responders through community giving in financial support as well as in-kind donations. “We fully support the Amelia Community Theatre’s mission to put the community on the stage,” said Matt Klabacka, owner of Townies Pizzeria. “The best way to get children involved in the arts is to encourage their passion for the theatre at a young age.”

“Our youth summer camp is one of the many ways we are able to share the love of theatre with a new generation,” said Linda McClane, Amelia Community Theatre managing director. “We're able to share this theatre experience and enrich our community because of the support we receive from volunteers, donors and local businesses.” For their youth summer camp, ACT offers a musical theatre camp and a regular theatre camp. “We’ve had fun and exciting plans for Townies,” states Klabacka. “We’re actively investing $1,000 in the local community every single month. We are supporting local schools, local arts, local sports, local poverty services and more.”
