Greetings from The Village Playbox of Haddon Heights! Like most theaters across the country, our stage has been dark, but that doesn’t mean we have lost hope. We will be ready to kick off a new season of entertainment as soon as we can ensure the absolute safety of our audiences, our actors, and our production crews. We cannot project an opening date, so we continue to dream and develop plans for the fine productions and concerts you have come to expect from us. Like so many of you, we have suffered as a result of the economic crisis. Basic operating expenses such as rent, insurance, and storage fees still had to be met over the past several months, but we had no income. We lost revenue from the cancellation of our spring musical, our children’s summer camp, the fall opening show, the one-act play festival, the annual Christmas show, cabarets and other special music events, donations from our summer cabaret at the Dell, Storytime Theatre, and concession sales. It is also very likely that our winter play will not be staged. As dire as that may sound, we are still here! But in order to plan for a future production that will kick-start our income stream, we need seed money. So we are turning to you for support. We are committed to upholding the traditions of community theater by presenting quality performances at affordable prices and providing a creative outlet for volunteer actors, directors, musicians, singers, stage managers, set designers, costumers, and sound and lighting technicians. Your donation is truly an investment in the future of community theater. If you prefer to send a check, please make it payable to The Village Playbox, PO Box 35, Haddon Heights, NJ 08035.
