Help us keep the Northern Star shining bright!
Here at NSTC we have been faced with the heart-breaking decision to cancel not one, but two of the productions in this season's line up. We are cautiously optimistic that we might be able to continue our season starting in June with The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, however, we are also working on a contingency plan in the event we are forced to restructure our season. While we are saddened by our decision, our first priority lies with the health and safety of our patrons, our actors and our volunteers.
Ticket sales account for the majority of our income here at NSTC. Cancelling a production results in a significant loss of revenue for our theater. Without revenue, we struggle to pay for licensing for shows, purchase materials for sets and costumes and make necessary upgrades to our sound and light equipment.
For the next couple of weeks, if we raise at least $1,000 from ten or more online donations through the GoFundMe Charity platform connected to the #GivingTuesdayNow Match Program will match your donations up to a total of $1,000. For example, if 100 people donate $10 each, the donation is doubled - we receive $2,000 total.
What can this money do? We're glad you asked. Even though our revenue flow has stopped almost completely, our bills have not stopped coming in. We will use donations to pay those bills that will allow us to be here to entertain you and provide opportunities for you to explore your creative interests . We know our Northern Star will keep shining with your help!
Thank you for your support of Northern Star Theatre Company. Your friendship means so much to us. We look forward to welcoming you back to Northern Star Theatre Company soon.
