Recently, a supporter and patron called Dark & Stormy the "Off-Broadway" theater of the Twin Cities, saying that you get to see the top talent in town in intimate spaces, telling vital, truthful, exquisitely human stories. You get the opportunity to be both entertained and explore how the story moves you and connects you to the other people in the intimacy of the room.
I was honored, because that's always been my goal and my passion. Listening to a story of emotional resonance brought to life in a room shared with other people is critical in this time of disconnection and darkness. Theater shines a light into our hearts and our humanity, and it helps us to understand that none of us is alone.
None of this would be possible without you.
Creating our unique brand of theater is vital to our community, and we need help to make it happen. We need your support to start 2023 off strong! Please help us reach our $5,000 goal for Give to the Max 2022 by making a donation today!
We have big plans in store for the next 10 years, starting with 2023, and lots of exciting news as we continue bringing you truthful theater that connects us and unites us all through live storytelling. We do theater for you, we do it with you, and we can't do it without you.
Thank you for making our first 10 years such a success, for making our work possible, and for your continued support!
