We Kept the Doors Open in 2020 and We're Keeping it Live in 2021!
- The Great Canadian Giving Challenge Returns
Watch our new video - Keeping The Doors Open
to see how we made it through 2020 and, for as little as $1 you could contribute $20,000 to our recovery in 2021!
We had an incredible year in 2020. Not our biggest slate of plays, not our largest houses, not our most viable season, but certainly one of our most memorable!
2020 is a year to be proud of. And we’re building on what we learned to help us make it through 2021. Different year, same pandemic, different challenges and opportunities, but this year we know we can do it!
We’ve had no access to an indoor performance space for over 425 days, but we successfully moved outdoors in 2020 and we’ll stay outdoors again until the province reopens indoor theatre venues.
We’ve had gathering limitations keep our audiences to less than 25 per show, but we know that the majority of our patrons are eager to return to theatre.
We’ve had stringent physical health protocols to maintain in rehearsals and in performance, but we know we kept everyone safe and now also have Safe Travels Stamp accreditation.
We’ve been unable to present many of the productions planned for last year and this year, but we know that we can find new productions, new ways to keep telling stories live, and we’re bringing last year’s scheduled opening summer production, Cottagers and Indians by Drew Hayden Taylor to our outdoor stage this July.
We also know how great our community is and how important we are to our artists, patrons and supporters. We know we can play an active role in helping our community and local businesses recover from the negative impacts of Covid 19.
This June, the Great Canadian Giving Challenge returns and we want to take the whole month to celebrate our many accomplishments, acknowledge everyone who has helped to keep our doors open and remind ourselves that we’re not out of the woods yet. Each milestone and appreciation is a good reason to make a donation of any size through CanadaHelps this June. Every dollar of every donation made between June 1 and June 30, will enter our organization into a draw for $20,000. Think of it - a donation of a little as $5 gives us five chances to win $20,000…and that $20,000 could be the difference between surviving and thriving through our pandemic recovery.
Want to know how we got through 2020? With the partnership support of Central Counties Tourism and Gray Bear Creative, we’ve created Keeping The Doors Open, a short documentary video of our 2020 summer season. It’s a great reminder of an exceptional year and an exceptional company, and we’d like to share it with you now. Please take a few minutes to watch Keeping The Doors Open and mark June on your calendar to join us in the Great Canadian Giving Challenge to make 2021 even better.
See you soon at the theatre!
