Our mission is to inspire and promote the arts through live theatre in a way that recognizes the role that theatre and the arts play in improving the quality of life locally, nationally and internationally.
Who We Are
The Heather is a 501c3 not-for-profit theatre company dedicated to producing thought provoking,
moving, uplifting , entertaining and inspiring works of live theatre.
The Heather is named after SAG-AFTRA actor, Heather Philipsen, whose courage and bravery during her time of struggle is an inspiration. The members of The Heather hope to allow her spirit and legacy of strength and genuine caring for others to live on through their performances and generosity to their community.
What We Do
We present 3-4 full length plays annually, utilizing local talent to serve the local, national and international community. For designated plays we donate a percentage of our ticket sales, concession sales, and private donations from the show to a local charity determined by the nature of each production. Beneficiaries of past shows include: The Center for Women, Homes for Our Troops, The Animal Coalition of Tampa, The Special Warriors Foundation, The Innocence Project and many others.
