Support The Panida Theater



As a community owned theater, the Panida depends on the participation of all kinds of people with all kinds of support. While financial assistance is very important to the theater one element of support that is just as important as money is time: the time people give to the Panida. We would be lost were it not for the Friends of The Panida.

An informal group, the Friends of the Panida are dedicated to the theater. Their time is spent volunteering during events at the theater and in the community at special fund raising projects. Volunteers help with ticket sales, ticket taking, concessions, and ushering for events presented by the Panida. In addition to the Panida-produced events the theater is frequently rented by other community organizations, such as POAC and the Unicorn Theater, which require volunteers in a similar capacity. Visiting performing artists use the Panida as a venue and volunteers are, of course, needed!


Outside of the theater building, we have 2 scheduled fund raising events each year:
Play It Again Panida – a music/video sale of used/new material which takes place during Crazy Daze
The Ice Cream Booth at the Festival at Sandpoint (open during every Festival performance).

Our volunteers get to meet new people, help our community theater operate, and, as a bonus get in “free” when volunteering! If it’s movies, music, dance or just the good feeling you get when you’re giving, come on down and give us a hand!

Our theater needs your help. We wouldn’t be here without the dedication of our community. We wouldn’t be here without the Friends of The Panida.

For more information on volunteering as a Friend of The Panida, please call us at (208) 255-7801 or email .
