Shea's Performing Arts Center is a non-profit presenting theatre company devoted to providing enriching and innovative theatrical experiences to our community all while restoring and maintaining the historic Shea's Buffalo Theatre. As a presenting theatre company, we only retain a portion of ticket sales which makes our community of supporters critical to continuing and growing our impact.
A planned or estate gift can be of any size, and it’s easier than you think to make your gift a reality.
Giving to our annual fund allows us to provide the community with amazing opportunities, fantastical experiences, and a spectacular center of performing arts.
Thank You to all who supported the 2023 Shea's Gala!
For nearly 100 years, patrons of Shea's Buffalo have enjoyed the sounds of The Mighty Wurlitzer organ. Shea's is in the middle of a campaign to fully restore this historic instrument by our 100th Anniversary so we can continue the organ's legacy for future generations.
Your legacy can be part of the Shea's history for future generations through a lasting gift in your estate plans.
