The U.S. Army Installation Management Command (IMCOM) Europe Entertainment Program is part of U.S. Army Entertainment and the U.S. Army Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation program.
For over 70 years, U.S. Army Entertainment has offered U.S. Service Members, Civilians and their Families opportunities to participate in and enjoy high-quality music and theater programs while serving overseas.
Importantly, the Army Entertainment program helps enhance Soldiers' and their Family Members' resiliency and readiness by providing them:
Seven Army Entertainment programs operate at U.S. Army Garrisons in Germany, Italy and Belgium. The program also supports and assists Army and Air Force theater groups in Germany, Turkey, the Netherlands and the U.K.
Army Entertainment programs in Europe function as Community Theaters, offering complete seasons of comedies, dramas, musicals and special events for all ages. Many offer classes for youth and adults in acting, directing, singing and all the theater arts. Some loan music equipment and offer rehearsal facilities. The programs also support Garrison-wide programs and special events.
Army Entertainment programs are operated by one or two professional theater staff members supported by Soldiers, Civilians, Family Members and Local National Citizen volunteers. Army Entertainment is the only MWR program that relies on a volunteer work force to operate.
Each year over 2,000 volunteers provide over 300,000 man hours putting on live shows and entertainment events in their European Garrison communities. They serve as actors, directors, designers, choreographers, technicians, costumers, stage hands, painters, builders, ushers and more.
