The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has hit the ARTS hard. The Brandywiners organization was part of the many theatrical groups forced to cancel events throughout 2020 into 2021. Revenues have been adversely affected. Without performances, it is uber challenging for the ARTS to survive. This is why we need you to #donate4ARTS.

The Brandywiners has used this downtime to re-brand itself. From the design of a new logo to instituting new policies that will help sustain us for the next generation of theatre goers. We met (virtually) a lot to create a strategic plan that will further cement our place within Delaware ARTS (and beyond) over the next five years. We are excited about where we are and where we are headed. COVID-19 is not going to stop us from providing engaging and robust ARTS. It never will! This is why we need you to #donate4ARTS.

The Brandywiners Ltd provides community entertainment through its 60+ person chorale and annual theatrical productions - since 1932. 

The Chorale’s concerts are a favorite among many retirement communities and churches in the area. We have entertained at holiday and retirement parties at the Wilmington Country Club, the DuPont Country Club, the Newark Country Club, Delaware Art Museum, Hagley Soda House, Winterthur Museum and Garden,  and the Chase Center on the Riverfront. The Chorale joined the Delaware Symphony for a pops concert at the Grand Opera House and has performed at Longwood Gardens at Christmas and the Smyrna Opera House. This is why we need you to #donate4ARTS.

The Brandywiners partners with Longwood Gardens to present a Broadway quality musical annually on its Open-Air Theatre. In addition, selections from our show are performed at places such as Bellevue Park, Rockwood Park, and community centers throughout Delaware.

This is why we need you to #donate4ARTS.
