Like what we do? Want to see more? Help keep the type of theatre that YOU want to see going!

Theatre companies need funding and supplies to create their work. They need working capital to rent spaces, pay actors, rent and buy props and supplies, pay for a variety of advertisement, and much more. We also need tools and building materiel for sets and costumes. If you are interested in helping, please contact us.
