In the heart of downtown Gloversville, the Glove Theatre presents a wide variety of music performance, comedy, family, cultural and holiday shows and events. Our goal is that you have a wonderful experience at our theatre and that each performance you attend will make an average night memorable.
Over the past several years the Glove Performing Arts Center has hosted numerous live performances and community events. These include full-scale musicals, summer children productions, Santa Comes to the Glove, Hey Jude, A Tribute to Sammy Davis Jr Concert. The re-enactment of Drums along the Mohawk from 1939. Also, about a thousand students from throughout the area attended the production of “In Darfur”. It’s quite amazing what we have been able to accomplish! This year we have taken on the project of restoring the marquee which was damaged two years ago.
As we continue to move forward, we continue to make every effort to secure funding through grants, foundations, and donations. However, we must continue to look to our community to help support programming and to pay operational expenses. We need your help to keep the Glove Performing Arts Center growing and serving our community. Any amount would be greatly appreciated. Give a gift to the Glove Performing Arts Center and watch your investment grow!
Look for big changes and lots of great entertainment from the Glove Performing Arts Center in the months to come as we celebrate 103 years of history and look forward to many more. Watch for our upcoming 2017 season with productions, events, bands, and other exciting activities.

The Glove Performing Arts Center is sprucing up the front of the theatre thanks to the Eagle Scouts Troop #53 and Christopher Smouse and his family for taking on a project to restore the Poster Display Cases in front of the theatre. We applicate Chris for taking on this very important project that is just one of the phases of the restoration that has been neglected. The cases were in terrible shape with a lot of deterioration from the weather. We had Plexiglas inserts that was not in keeping with the historical nature of the building. The Plexiglas was scratched clouded and not water tight. The locking system was deficient with mismatch keys, broken or missing altogether. Some frames were held closed by a simple screw. Molding around the frames were rotten with broken hinges that allowed water to enter. There are thousands of possible Eagle Scout projects; however we are so glad that Cristopher picked this project. It had the most important impact or benefit that provided for our organization. Thank you letters from the Eagle Scout Christopher Smouse went to each of the donors for the project.
The project was to rebuild the five display cases on either side of the entrance to the theatre with safety glass inserts. If you now walk pass the theatre you certainly can see a difference. Rebuilding these cases has improved the visual appeal of the entrance and the theatre in general. This will also aid in the beautification of an important Gloversville landmark and of the historic downtown area. We use every opportunity to try and make the theatre inviting to the public.
Recently the Glove Performing Arts Center negotiated with a local contractor for the repair of the marquee in the spring. We did receive a fundraiser donation of $1200 from the Oath & Iron Motorcycle Club, in addition another $500 donation from the public. We really need the Marquee repaired now that the display windows are completed. This summer we also had constructed a new sound and light booth in back of the concession stand. We truly appreciate all the support from everyone in making this year a great success. The all-volunteer staff of the Glove Performing Arts Center has big plans for the beloved landmark including many other projects. It has always been our intent to continue to improve our track record as a significant arts and community events venue to the region. We look forward to playing perhaps our finest part, a leader in the economic renewal of the community, that has generously donated their time and resources to bring the theatre back to life once again.
Look for big changes and lots of great entertainment from the Glove Performing Arts Center in the months to come as we celebrate 103 years of history and look forward to many more. Watch for our upcoming 2017 season with productions, events, bands, and other exciting activities. To see more photos check Gallery page and click on Around the Glove.
