Help us to keep our theatre going!
The current environment with COVID-19 is putting us in a position where we risk losing a company that has built a legacy of memories. The one thing we have that this virus will never take from us is a true love and appreciation for the fans that we've been able entertain over the years. In this time of need, we ask you for your help so we can continue to bring live theatre to our incredible community.
Won’t you consider donating to King’s Town Players in our great time of need. Although we are working on ways to reduce our rent and have other expenses deferred, we desperately need financial support because we do not rely on grants. Our main source of income is from our box office receipts. Those of us in the arts community and those of us who support the arts know the financial pressures that have long been increasing for those in the arts.
We have set a goal of $15,000 to help us through this crisis.
Consider donating $40 (the regular price of a pair of tickets for a performance) – or whatever you can – any amount will help. We even offer the ability to make recurring donations to our company, that you can cancel at any time. It would help us be able to pay the bills so that when we kick this virus, we can get back to celebrating life the best way we know how. We love our community and hope to remain a part of it for many more years to come.
We have taken great pride to be able to bring quality theatre to the Kingston area over the past decade. This virus is hurting everyone and it's especially painful for us having to sit back and not be able to bring live theatre to others in a time where we need it most.
King's Town Players is a not-for-profit theatre company that has always been privately funded... no grants! To enable us to stage the quality productions that we are known for takes far more money than you might probably imagine. Ticket sales and advertising only account for a portion of our income so we have to raise the rest by fund raising events and personal donations. Having had to cancel our final two shows for the season, and having no other opportunities for live events for the coming months, we need your help to keep our company going!
King's Town Players was founded in 2010 with the belief that we love what we do and want to share that love of theatre with Kingston. Over the past ten seasons we have produced forty-eight plays, nine live radio shows and one 'found space' production. We have brought one original play to the stage and nineteen Kingston premieres. We have worked (played) together with several other local theatre groups, and we believe that working together is the best way to ensure our collective futures.
Thank you in advance for your help in these trying times. We wish you good health and security.
