Bakerloo Theatre Project is an alternative classical repertory theatre company focused on performance and artist development. Since 2000, we have provided audiences with thrilling theatrical experiences, while giving emerging artists the opportunity to perform great plays for grateful audiences. Bakerloo is especially interested in bringing young audiences to the theatre, showing them the inifinte possibilities in the creative arts.
Over the years, Bakerloo has benefitted from Pittsburgh's talented artists and enthusiastic audiences while performing primarily in Troy, NY. In the summer of 2012, through a partnership with the Future Tenant Art Space, we're thrilled to be bringing the full Bakerloo experience to the city.
Our 2012 season is as ambitious as ever, featuring Shakespeare's Henry V and George Bernard Shaw's Candida.
And bringing the season to Pittsburgh means twice the challenges for us - twice the housing, twice the transportation, twice the programs, twice the workshops, twice the advertising, twice the fun!
We believe that theatre is a communal experience to be shared by all people, not just the privileged few. Keeping ticket prices low and providing incentives for families to attend are key components of Bakerloo's policy to serve a broad population, regardless of income, background or age. This is a mission we feel strongly about bringing to Pittsburgh audiences.
By bringing our 2012 Season to Pittsburgh, we will more than double our audience. And we are implementing special programs, like our Young Audience Outreach Initiative, which provide our young audience members with free tickets and Shakespearean workshops,to better serve our new community.
Your pledge gives Bakerloo your vote of confidence and the necessary funds to make our goal a reality. No donation is too small!
$2000 is only a fraction of the funds we need to raise, but it will make a huge difference to us. Any funds we raise over this goal will help make the project a complete success.
