Some productions saw as many as 85 cast members on stage at a time at venues in Hubbard, Mineral Ridge, Campbell, Canfield and Youngstown. Remaining a non-profit, completely volunteer-driven Christian organization, Top Hat said that the ministry has survived solely on the grace of God and the blessings of private donors, and considers it quite an accomplishment that they have been able to staff years of productions without having anyone involved on a payroll.
