Father Joe Scholarship
In 2008, the Music Box honored the memory of a dear friend by dedicating the production of “THE MUSIC MAN” to

The Reverend Joseph T. "Father Joe" Gilbert

and adding a Star in his honor to our
“Theatre of the Stars.”

We continue this memorial by asking all performers and friends of community theatre who knew and loved Father Joe to contribute to a scholarship fund so a few deserving children, who would otherwise be financially unable, can attend our Children’s Summer Theater Workshop each year. Monies collected will be added to the fund and used each year to assist identified recipients. Any amount contributed will be greatly appreciated.

You can support this scholarship program via Paypal:

Use the "Add special instructions to the seller" box to indicate your donation is for the Father Joe Scholarship.

Donations can be also be sent to the theatre:

Music Box Dinner Playhouse
196 Hughes Street
Swoyersville, PA. 18704

Checks should be made out to "Music Box Players". Please write “Father Joe Scholarship” on the envelope and on the check memo line.

Father Joe’s family and Father Sempa will be notified with a complete list of all donors, and will assist in selecting scholarship recipients.

For more information, please contact The Music Box Dinner Playhouse at 570-283-2195 or email office@musicbox.org
