Thanks, all, for joining us this season. This is is the most important, most exciting time in our history. After five years of steady growth and our 2014 season ending with a tremendous sold-out run of Tomfoolery, we ask for your help as we finally achieve a long-awaited dream: in Summer 2015, our fifth year at Ann Arbor’s West Park, The Penny Seats will present two full-scale, professional shows, for nine performances each, over six weeks. This will double our summer residency, and at last build us into the summer repertory company we set out to be.
In five years we have enjoyed enthusiastic and growing support from the community. We’re proud and excited, and we have many to thank. Since day one, our funding model has been simple: raise every season’s funds in advance, and don’t spend what you can’t raise. We rely on donations and grants for 100% of our season budget. We don’t count on ticket sales, so we can keep ticket prices very low. We want to be the best theatrical value in town, delivering top-quality theatre at bargain prices. That’s where you come in.
Our goal is ambitious: to achieve our dream this year, we need to pay two sets of royalties, two times the rent for West Park and rehearsal space, and, most importantly, we need the proper funds to pay the dedicated Michigan artists at the center of it all. Can you help us?
Helping out is easy, and it comes with some great perks, including free tickets to all our shows! So please, Click Here, and this year, help us achieve what we set out to do. Let’s give Ann Arbor a fabulous, top-quality summer theatre festival in the park.
