New incentive to donate just added!

Since we met our goal, to encourage continued giving, we are offering a very special new incentive for donors.

For every $10 donation given over our $4000 goal, the donor will receive one entry in a drawing for a 2012-2013 Free Admission Pass. This Pass will grant you one free admission to all regular Resident Company or Associate Resident Company shows for the entire season. This incentive is valued at over $700.

So if you donate $100, that's 10 entries in the drawing. This incentive is available only for donations over the $4000 goal.

Can we hit $5000? If we do, I can promise another awesome incentive ...

Thank you, again, to all of you who have made this possible. And thank you all for continuing to support live local performing arts.

TheatreWorks is a non-profit tax-exempt organization committed to providing low cost rehearsal and performance space to emerging artists and performing arts groups who share the facilities.

From its humble beginnings in 1987, TheatreWorks has grown from a mere three resident companies to over a dozen resident and associate resident companies. In just the past year, TheatreWorks added The Evergreen Theatre to its properties, making two stages and three studio spaces available to local performance arts groups and classes, ranging from dance, yoga, dramatic and comedic theater and everything in between.

With operational support from generous donations and grants from ArtsMemphis and the Jeniam Foundation, TheatreWorks has been able to house and provide performance space for several years.  In our ever-expanding goal of supporting our resident and associate resident companies, we are seeking to raise funds to begin an advertising campaign for each performance company's productions.

Funds raised would be used to place weekly ads in local publications, such as The Memphis Flyer and Commercial Appeal, promoting each week's current production as well as future productions.

Please help us "Light Up The Works" and support local arts by donating to our campaign.

Resident and Associate Resident Companies that would benefit from this campaign include:

Bluff City Tri-Art Theatre

Emerald Theatre Company

FreakEngine Productions

Harkins House Productions

Memphis Black Arts Alliance

My Quest Productions

New Moon Theatre Company

Our Own Voice

POTS at The Works

Project Motion

Voices of the South

Working Title Productions

Young Actors Guild
