We are Applause Community Theatre (ACT). ACT has a long history in the Twin Cities producing full length production, one-act festivals that often feature local playwrights, and participating in Minnesota Association of Community Theaters (MACT) festivals.
Funds will be used for 2024 season. Please help us with a one-time or recurring donation.
Normal production costs that include:
By being frugal on other costs [and not being able to pay stipends to actors/directors/crew, which we would like to do], we can keep production costs under $4,500 per production. Add in the cost of our annual participation in MACT Festivals and we have an operating budget of $15,000, small by local community theater standards.
Ticket sales account for 47-53% of the budget, as we are committed to providing excellent theater at an affordable price.
That's where you come in, we hope. Would you please consider a one-time or recurring donation to Applause to keep the doors open? 100% of what we receive is applied to the costs of production.
We are thankful for any donation, from $5 to $5,000. GiveMN does offer you the option of making a recurring donation [just like MPR] at any level. You could, for instance, donate $25/month, which annually pays royalties for one weekend.
Or even $10/month buys a script for one production. every month You get the idea.
