Applause Community Theatre

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:

  • Rehearsal space:  $1000-1500
  • Performance space:  $1000 - 2000
  • Royalties and music rentals:  $250 - 1000

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.
