Ensemble repertory theatre is not common anymore. The idea of supporting a company of artists – actors, directors, designers, composers, musicians, craftspeople – is rare now because it is, at its heart, a very expensive way to do the work — much more so than the normal, one show at a time framework common to Broadway or regional theatre.
It is an investment in artists and one we think pays off in the quality of performance.
And that’s where your support of the Year End Giving Appeal helps make a difference. Your gift allows us to invest in the professional development of our artists; with year round training and development.
One of our Ensemble Members Marla McLean recently shared her story with us, on how the generosity of others played a tremendous role in helping her pursue her career path. She is not alone.
The arts remind us to take a moment and reflect upon ourselves and upon others, upon where we have come from and where we are headed. They remind us to laugh unabashedly or rage unreservedly against injustice and allow us to spend a few hours in the dark sharing something singular with strangers.
I believe giving back to the arts is important. For many, like me, pursuing a career in the arts is a growing artist’s dream, only made possible because of donors who share a love of the arts and a commitment to helping others. Thank you.
– Marla McLean
