Dear Friends of TheatreOne,
As Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary, TheatreOne is launching a major fundraising campaign: $150,000 for Canada’s 150th. This will build the foundation we need to offer even more high quality, professional theatre to Nanaimo and the mid-Island region.
To accomplish this goal, we need your support.
TheatreOne has been part of our community’s cultural life for over three decades, bringing the magic of the arts to children and families, theatre fans and film buffs; and building economic opportunity for skilled people working in the creative sector.
Yet what we do as a company - mounting professional productions, bringing in exciting children’s entertainment, working with playwrights to develop original plays, and offering hard-to-access foreign films – costs far more than our current donations, sponsorships, government investment and box office revenues generate.
We have set a challenging target of $150,000 because what we do is important to social and civic development. As long-time contributors to TheatreOne, we know you also value the arts, and we deeply appreciate your support.
Please consider making an annual or ongoing tax deductible donation to our “$150,000 for Canada’s 150th” campaign. By doing so, you will be investing in the future of theatre in our community, and in the many talented BC artists who make the performing arts possible.
Artistic Director, David Mann
