Message from Patrick Dooley,
Artistic Director

Artists looove working here but, sadly, they can’t pay their bills with applause or post show drinks. The money we raise for this campaign provides the critical resources to get folks on contract, so they can start plotting and planning the visions that will become the art you love!

Theaters thrive when they are in partnership with their communities. We count on your feedback, advocacy, and support. Throughout the year so many people have shared their thoughts about why they love live theater. Let's keep the conversation going! During our Artist Campaign you'll have opportunities to share why you love live theater.  Check out the word cloud below with responses we've received! We will keep updating our word cloud throughout our campaign so that you can see all the ways that theatre makes a difference in our community.
