The Historic Panida Theater seeks community members for Board of Directors and Committee Volunteers

This is an opportunity for creative and enthusiastic community members to join the Panida team and help to guarantee that our theater remains a unique historic and art-deco venue for generations to come. Here, live concerts, classic and current movies, local and touring theatrical productions, and community arts organizations will continue to flourish.

By giving time and energy Board members help grow a nurturing environment.Here children learn to creatively cooperate in productions that build memories, pride and skills. On our stage children of Sandpoint have gone on to be nationally known artists. For decades well known performers have filled our auditorium with applause.

Those of you who serve on the Panida Board in 2022 and beyond will be party to decisions that will affect the arts community in Sandpoint for decades to come.You will be part of the 100 year anniversary celebration of the Theater and part of a history that the future will celebrate. Fiber optics connecting art theaters across the world, new digital technology, coupled with creative restoration techniques will insure that the Panida remains a historic gem, drawing great performers and patrons, not just from North Idaho but from the entire Northwest.

Your excitement, time and energy will provide the leadership needed to make a lasting contribution to future generations of North Idaho citizens. If you love the theater and want to be part of a collaborative, creative, forward-looking, small group of women and men, then your serving on the Panida Board will enrich your life and ensure that the Panida thrives.
