Help Us Keep Professional Theatre

Hello Pacific Coast Repertory Theatre friends!  We need to raise $10,000 now.

Our nine year old, critically acclaimed professional theatre company needs to humbly appeal for your tax-deductible assistance.  Our non-profit 501c3 company has proudly featured award-winning union professional Actors’ Equity Association (AEA) actors, stage managers, and union musicians in all of our shows.  We also regularly use Broadway or National Touring actors in our productions.  We always use professional directorial staff, designers and musicians.  We have every intention of continuing to do so.

Traditionally, we have been presented by the City of Pleasanton at the Firehouse Arts Center as the resident professional theatre company.  They underwrote our entire production budget and in return, the City of Pleasanton kept the ticket revenue. 

The City of Pleasanton is no longer underwriting our productions.  Pacific Coast Repertory Theatre will now be renting the Firehouse Arts Center.  We are prepared to do this and we need your help now. 

We will no longer be getting any money from the City and have to rely completely on ticket sales to cover our production costs (e.g. set, royalties, costumes, designer fees, etc.).  Under this new arrangement, we will not have any ticket sales money until February of 2019.

It is part of our mission to continue producing professional Actors Equity Association theatre.  We can’t continue to bring this level of theatre without your tax-deductible support today.

We are prepared to make this change to rent the Firehouse Arts Center and we would greatly appreciate any financial support to help us bridge the gap in funding this year.  

If we can raise $10,000 we will meet our goal for the season and still be able to bring in professional theatre to the Firehouse Arts Center this year.  This $10,000 will enable us to continue using union professional stage actors, stage management, musicians, designers, and directorial staff.  Please know any amount, even $30, would help us reach our goal.

Will you please join us in making a tax-deductible donation to Pacific Coast Repertory Theatre?  We will send you a tax deduction letter for your records to thank you for your generous gift.

Respectfully,

David Judson/Joy Sherratt
