Please Help Keep the Doors Open

We’re not going to sugar coat it.  The COVID-19 closures and restrictions have put us in a bind.  Over the next months, it is probable that we will be closed to all classes, rehearsals, and performances.  We have done a thorough analysis and projection, and found that a four-to-six month closure will in all probability, force us to shut down the theatre.

You can help keep the doors open! 

Our goal of $40,000 will enable us to weather the storm and continue to provide our students and patrons with:

  • A full range of classes, rehearsals, and summer workshops
  • Performances by our Premier, Junior, Senior, and Adult companies
  • Special music events and performances
  • First-class directors, choreographers, music instruction, and backstage support

Tax Deduction for Contributions of $300 or less:

The new Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) contains a one-time, above-the-line deduction for cash contributions of up to $300 made to certain qualifying charities.  Many taxpayers would be eligible to take the deduction, even people who use the standard deduction.Over the past several years, we have worked hard to provide our students and performers with expanded classroom and rehearsal areas, improved lighting and sound equipment, and enhanced performing spaces. 

While we have plans to move forward with these improvements, this fundraiser is really about our short-term needs--making sure that we can continue to pay those ongoing costs (like rent, utilities, and ongoing operational expenses) that will keep us going through this crisis and beyond.

Please consider a donation…anything helps.  In addition, to this fundraiser, we have contacted our local, state, and federal representatives to enlist their help.  We encourage you to do the same, and with your help, we can together provide you and our community with an even stronger theatre home for our students, patrons, and the mountain community.

Thank you very much!!
