Here’s how you can make a difference on #GivingTuesday and every day for Centerstage Theatre!

Centerstage Theatre is participating in #GivingTuesday, a day that encourages people to do good in their community. The professional theatre company continues to adapt to the times and is providing theatre via streaming options. While this is not the same as attending in person, the company believes in the power of theatre and is doing what they can to keep the arts alive, utilizing theatre as a beacon of hope in these challenging times. Due to lower ticket sale revenue, Centerstage must rely on other forms of support. Held on December 1, Centerstage needs to raise $10,000 on this day of giving to continue to help bridge the gap left from reduced ticket sales.

"The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have been devastating to our actors, students, technicians, designers, directors, choreographers, stage managers and staff who rely on us," said Angela Bayler, Centerstage's managing director. "We had to cancel the rest of our 2019/20 season in March and scale back our operations to retain only essential functions and staff. This means our revenue streams went dry with no ticket sales. Because of the devastating financial impact, it is more important than ever that we all come together on this special day to raise $10,000 to keep our theatre alive."
