Dear Friends and Patrons of Riverside Theatre Works,
Thank you for supporting our mission to provide arts education and high-quality theatre for Hyde Park and the surrounding community. With your help and generosity, we were able to serve more than 375 students in classes and lessons this year alone, and bring more than 7000 audience members to the historic French’s Opera House for productions of “Rent,” “Cabaret,” “Once Upon A Mattress,” “Spring Awakening,” “Cinderella Jr.,” and more.
Today, we ask for your urgent help as we make modern safety upgrades to our very old building. This year, we undertook the monumental task of upgrading our stage rigging and lighting system – a necessity for the safety of our actors and audiences, but a challenge to our budget. State grants haven’t fully covered the high cost of upgrades in this economic climate, and we need your help to keep the curtains open.
Please consider a donation for the safe, bright future of Riverside Theatre Works. You can contribute at one of these levels and all donors will be recognized in our programs this year:
Producer: $1000 and above
We all care deeply about the future of Riverside Theatre Works and its critical role in the community. With your help, we can keep the curtain raised and the lights shining for years to come.
