your support

Over the past several years this has been the time of year we have requested your support of the Playhouse beyond the purchase of tickets. The support you have generously provided in response to our letter has helped to maintain the day-to-day operation of the Playhouse by purchasing scripts, paying the mortgage and utilities, buying office supplies, paying the salaries of the two employees, and will again.

Your ongoing support, both financially and as an audience member, is a vital part of the foundation upon which the Playhouse is built. We could not do what we do without you.  By the end of 2014, we will have presented 45 performances of half a dozen plays, staged readings, musical performances, and contemporary ballet, plus two weeks of summer theatre camp involving two dozen students. This brings us to a total of 185 productions of 151 plays over our 28 year existence. As a result of these productions along with the numerous arts education opportunities, and providing a venue for a variety of musical programs, original dance pieces and other original works, we have become something of an arts institution on the Eastern Shore.

Please know that we do not take lightly asking for your support.  You have nurtured our growth for more than a quarter of a century, and we are honored by your continued faith in us. Your contribution to the capital campaign is enabling us to improve our facility for all who come into the Playhouse-actors, dancers, designers, students and patrons.  Your annual support enables us to keep the doors open and lights on for all of those folks and more. We will strive to continue to make you proud of your part in the life of the Playhouse.

Remember that the arts are not a luxury, but a vital component of every healthy community and every successful educational program.  We hope that you can find room for us in your charitable giving plan for 2014-2015. All of your contributions to The North Street Playhouse are tax deductible and are most appreciated.

All contributors are listed in our programs and you will also receive a letter confirming the donation which may be used for tax purposes.
