OpenStage Theatre’s No-Show Ball

Schedule your donation by #GivingTuesdayNow on May 5, 2020

You are cordially invited to STAY AT HOME and attend OpenStage Theatre’s No-Show Ball! Put on your PJ’s and join us for the most casual fundraiser you’ve ever been to – from your living room!

As you know, COVID-19 has filled many hearts and minds with uncertainty – including ours. Sadly, in compliance with state issued health and safety orders, we have closed the curtain on the remainder of the 2019/2020 season. The result of which could be devastating.

Together, however, we can change that.  OpenStage has strived for nearly fifty years to build a thoughtful and culturally enriched community, which could not happen without you by our side. We would love nothing more than to continue to give you the theatre that you love, and a place to call home.

So while we’re all staying at home, let’s have a little fun and show each other some love while we do it! In lieu of spending hundreds of dollars on a night out, we hope you might consider a direct donation to OpenStage.

All proceeds will help cover over $70,000 lost from cancelled performances.
