#GivingTuesday has been celebrated for 9 years on the Tuesday following Black Friday. That tradition will continue with #GivingTuesdayNow, as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. Many nonprofits have already experienced as much as a 60% loss of income due to the pandemic - nonprofits that care for our community in thousands of different ways.
As a non-profit trying to sustain itself through this difficult time in our community and our country, we need your help more today than in all of our 27 year history. Castle Craig Players has been an important element of the quality of life in the city of Meriden and has provided top-notch theatre experiences to the surrounding communities, as well. We offer scores of local performers the opportunity to express themselves creatively, and hundreds of audience members are given exceptional productions that educate, entertain, and inspire.
The need for support is great. Our world has changed enormously in the past two months, and we all find ourselves at a standstill. The safety of our actors, volunteers - and most importantly - YOU, our patrons - is of the highest priority to us. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of our season, and postpone the fantastic titles we were planning to bring you until our 2020-2021 season.
And as we face the many challenges ahead, we look forward to welcoming the public back to our theatre.
Please donate today. With your help, Castle Craig Players will continue to stand strong and survive.
Thank you, and stay safe & healthy!
