Like all nonprofit arts groups, we partly depend on contributed income to make up each year's budget. Box office alone can never do it. We're a Federally-approved, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) and all that. Contributions, less the value of anything received (like tickets, for instance) are tax deductible.
Your support is vital to our success. We have made great progress on our new home in the T1 Space at Bergamot Station, but we need your help to finish our important backstage storage area for costumes and props, and to put the final touches on the stage. To recognize people who are ready to help us reach these goals, we are starting a wall called "Cercle des Amis" (Our Circle of Friends). For a contribution of $500 for one name, $750 for two names, or $1,000 for a family, a plaque with your name will be placed in our lobby to thank you for your patronage and generosity. You will also receive two passports good for any of our upcoming productions!
In addition to the special Cercle des Amis, we have five different categories of giving that each come with their own benefits: Founders, Sponsors, Patrons, Friends, and City Garage Union Members.
