We are asking you to invest in the people of ACT!

Your gift today will directly support the ACT family. We will re-emerge from these uncertain times, but we must maintain our current limited staff in order to make the changes to our programming offerings that will allow us to bring you amazing theatre once the gathering bans are lifted. This requires staff to respond to community inquiries and raise funds to ensure ACT has the resources needed to come back strong while not compromising on the art for which we are known. Your generosity will allow us to keep moving forward so we can welcome you back with the bold theatre you love!

Your commitment to ACT will help keep all of us safe and healthy! ACT will maintain health insurance for all currently enrolled employees. We have staff working reduced hours and a number on standby or furlough who would have lost this safeguard as their status changed. No matter their status, we are making sure they are covered and have access to healthcare as needed.

The show must go on. Theatres, actors and our creative industry need your help now more than ever. ACT Now to Keep ACT Healthy!

How can we achieve this?

We are assessing our current financial situation day to day. Our greatest expenses have and always will be the people who make the art possible. We are committed to protecting our community in this unprecedented time.

We anticipate minimum expenses of $25,000 each week to maintain operations at our current, significantly reduced level. All nonessential spending has been placed on hold and we are focused solely on supporting the ACT family.

To do that, we are attempting to raise $25,000 each week. It is our hope that we will be able to cover all of more of the expenses necessary to keep our theatre moving forward through through the generosity of our community. We are hopeful we will stay strong in this time of uncertainty with you behind these efforts!

These are challenging times for all of us. If you would like to spread your gift over the course of the year or a number of months, we can work with you to make these arrangements! Please contact development@acttheatre.org to arrange a payment plan that aligns with your goals.
