As many of you know our very busy year has left us with a deficit. We produced five touring productions, performed to over 50,000 students, traveled over 40,000km (that’s the equivalent of driving Vancouver to St. John’s 5 ½ times!), engaged over 35 volunteers, and entertained and enriched over 130 youth at our PA Day, March Break and Summer Camps. Then, mid-season, we lost our biggest sponsor.
But instead of cancelling any programming, Roseneath pulled up our bootstraps! Staff put in additional overtime to research, manage and execute the amazing work we do while cutting expenses by almost $15,000. Artists hustled during the set-up and strike at each school to cut down on the potential of overtime costs. Volunteers donated over 800 hours of their time and talent in both the office, fundraising events, and camps.
We did what we could, but NOW WE NEED YOU!
In our last push to lower our deficit, we’re looking for an additional $3,000, which our Board of Directors will match. With YOUR help every $1.00 donated will fill $2.00 of the deficit. Any donation will make a big impact for a company dedicated to giving the young people of our Province the entertaining, thoughtful, and important social-justice themed work they deserve!
We gratefully acknowledge the following individuals for digging deep in support of Roseneath Theatre. BIG THANKS from our Staff and Board of Directors.
