Your Support Matters
March 28, 2020
The cast of The Color Purple takes bows during a standing ovation.
Right now your support is more important than ever before. These heartfelt messages from some of the artists that we've been fortunate enough to bring to our stages serve as a reminder of the incredible impact your gift can have on our community.
"At different times in her life, she had kept a list of reasons not to be alive. Having participated in the show, it was therapeutic enough for her that she was starting to keep a different kind of list." -Actor Isaac Lamb on an audience response to Every Brilliant Thing.
"People are changed. They're better because of it and they see themselves on that stage. ... Everybody deserves a seat at the table and I think that theater can definitely do that." -Actor Felicia Boswell on the impact of The Color Purple.
"It changed their life." -Clara-Liis Hillier, our education and community programs associate, on the ways our education programs can impact local students.
If you are able to offer support during this difficult time, donations of any size are incredibly meaningful. We are endlessly grateful for your generosity!
