Did you know that our box office revenue only covers 50% of our expenses? If we didn’t have fundraisers then we would have to double our prices and theatre would not be affordable for all to see. We do several fundraisers over the course of the year, but our biggest event is the most fun and exciting. We started this event 16 years ago and called it Encores. At that time it was a unique event with a musical revue show, seated meal and silent auction. Over the years we have tried to change minor things here and there like the ticket price, a full show versus a musical revue but eventually we needed to make the big change.
Encores: Vegas, Baby! This event has all the fun with little cost. Where can you go to play casino games, eat fabulous food, enjoy live entertainment, buy a glowing martini, have a blast in our photo booth and browse our silent auction for a cost lower than entrance ticket to most fundraisers? It’s one of the best deals in town. I hope you will consider supporting our event by attending or making a donation if you can’t. Help us to keep theatre accessible to all and our ticket prices low.
