Encore! Home School Productions

Welcome to Encore! Home School Productions

Seth2Who is Encore!?

Encore! began in 2001, the brain child of Debra Bell, as a way to give homeschoolers the same type of theatrical opportunities as public schooled children. It became officially incorporated as Encore! Home School Productions in November of 2006 – the year we tackled our first musical.
How is Encore set up?

We are a Pennsylvania non-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Our all-volunteer group is able to provide dramatic opportunities to our students through corporate sponsorships, actor’s dues, ticket sales, program ads, well-wishes and donations.


What is Encore’s Mission Statement?

  1. To glorify God;
  2. To supplement local educational programs for home schooled students by establishing opportunities to learn, develop, enhance, and challenge new skills associated with theatre productions;
  3. To teach students to listen, discern, and think both critically and creatively, increasing students’ cultural awareness through participation in both classic and contemporary theatrical productions of artistic excellence; and
  4. To advance the social, cultural and recreational welfare of the residents of Harrisburg and surrounding communities by promoting the theatre and performing arts through the presentation of live theatre productions which are suitable for all ages thereby fostering a strong, involved community.
