Save Finest City Improv Theatre!

PLEASE HELP SAVE OUR BELOVED STAGE! Finest City Improv is an independently run theatre, founded by our fearless leader, Amy Lisewski. Her hard work in building and running this theatre has created a safe space of laughter and community for all of San Diego. 

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Amy has worked TIRELESSLY to keep the stage from closing. Countless hours have been spent researching and applying for funds and grants, endless hours of sitting on hold, grasping for any kind of support that could keep the ship afloat. 

The results have just not been enough, as we see the second wave of lockdowns going into effect, and no more government assistance on the horizon.  The building landlord of the theatre is now threatening evictions and lawsuits and REFUSES to budge on lowering rent during this impossible time. Amy herself is looking at bankruptcy as she fights to keep this dream alive for EVERYONE.

So now it's time for our community to RALLY TOGETHER and SAVE FINEST CITY IMPROV. Our city has already had to say goodbye to so many beloved businesses who have had to close their doors forever due to lack of funds. Don't let Finest City Improv be another loss to this pandemic. ANYTHING HELPS!  And please SHARE THIS POST!

Only have a few dollars to donate? That's ok! Our first tier goal is $5,000 to pay rent THIS MONTH so the landlord won't evict the theatre. Any small amount will help us reach this goal.

Your donation today will
do so much not only for Amy, who has poured everything into this theatre, but for your entire community of San Diego and beyond.  It will give hope to those who need it, so that this theatre can be there for those who need it.  This theatre has a similar story for so many- we find these classes, these shows, and this community at a time when we truly need it. When everything else might be upside down in life, the theatre was there as a safe haven for joy, expression, community, and LAUGHTER, which is the best medicine of all.  Please let us keep this dream alive for everyone in our city.

In place of a one time donation, Finest City Improv also has a monthly subscription program for online content as part of the Save our Stages movement! If that strikes for your fancy, follow the link posted.

Thank you America's Finest City, we know we can count on you!53064302_1607185178235859_r.jpeg53064302_1607185197106746_r.jpeg53064302_1607185212887179_r.jpeg
