Forgotten Roots Theatre Company is a Los angeles based theatre that focuses on doing the works of little known black playwrights. We need your help!
I am honored to announce that I am the new Producing Artistic Director of the “Forgotten Roots Theatre Company”, an affiliate of “The Blaq Rose Theatre Troupe”. After two successful, independently-staged productions in 2009, we have defined our vision. We want to be one of the few world-renowned African-American theatre companies based in the Los Angeles area. We are aware that this is a lofty goal; therefore, we are counting on believers like you to ensure that this dream becomes a reality.
As you know, the initial cost to establish and develop a business is crucial to its success. This makes it imperative for us to generate funds to develop our artistic vision while staying true to our mission statement.
“We will present stories of African-American centered life as they relate to our struggle, our history and our culture. Through non-stereotypical, inspirational works by countless (often forgotten) black playwrights, we will revive, uplift and unify our audiences as our fight for survival continues throughout the 21st century. We commit to give voice to African- American creativity and our performances will reflect the genuine essence of our commitment to our community and beyond.”
In our continual efforts to reach our goal to become a notable theatre we are now taking the necessary steps to be recognized as a Nonprofit Organization. Our initial objective this season is to raise a minimum of $3000 to complete our 501(c)(3) status as well as to successfully execute our first season. To move forward, we are asking for your donation of a min of $5.00 so that we may strengthen our voice through each and every production this company presents. Your funds will help tremendously in helping us obtain or goal this coming year. Our first show is scheduled for May 21-23, 2010.
We are thrilled to steadily make strides to knock down the barriers that keep our voices from being heard. It is only with your help that we will continue to tell the stories that are important to our community and the world alike. Please feel free to pass this information along to other likeminded individuals who will appreciate our vision. Thanking you in advance.
