On behalf of everyone at Theatre Projects Manitoba, we would like to thank you for your commitment to our creativity, development and dedication to Canadian theatre. As a patron of Theatre Projects Manitoba, you have already experienced the groundbreaking work we bring to our community by Manitoba playwrights such as Debbie Patterson and Carolyn Gray. Perhaps you have even seen the recent success of our Monday evening Salons or been present at one of our Students Nights. Thank you!
Those Salons and Students Nights are helping us to connect with Winnipeg’s youth – our city’s future leaders. If you haven’t seen these initiatives in action, here is just one excerpt from a Red River College student blog, to give you a sense of the impact our plays can have:
(the musical) Wicked …was spectacular, and over the top. Yet Sargent & Victor & Me affected me on a personal level. The set wasn’t extravagant, and that worked for it. It was believably minimal, it looked like it could be a food bank. Wicked had a huge budget, and catchy songs… but the personal, intimate nature of S &V & M made me think critically. I’ll be thinking about the key messages of Sargent & Victor & Me a lot longer than ‘Defying Gravity’ will be stuck in my head.
We are reaching out to all of our patrons and invite you to consider making a charitable gift to Theatre Projects Manitoba. Our ticket sales often cover less than 30% of what it costs to produce the work, and make up less than 20% of our overall operating budget. But we are determined to keep our ticket prices affordable to everyone, including students, while providing the best resources to create the art. To do this, we need your support!
It is easy to donate: just follow this link or give us a call at the office – 204-989-2400 – we love to speak with you! And stay tuned – we will soon be announcing our 25th anniversary season of Theatre Projects Manitoba. We encourage you to purchase a subscription, invite your friends to our theatre, and be an active member of our theatre – you are our lifeblood!
Thank you for your support of Theatre Projects Manitoba. See you at the theatre!
