Meggie is raising money for Springboard for the Arts.
A fiscally sponsored project of Springboard for the Arts
About Persistent Theatre Productions:
Our mission is to bring women's untold stories to the stage, in a thought provoking, powerful way. Our vision is to create theatre that gives a voice to the underrepresented and unheard. All of our work will have a feminist voice because women have been overlooked for far too long not only in theatre but our world. We believe that we must continue firmly in a course of action in spite of difficulty.
What We are Raising Money for:
Our 2nd season, TBD.
Your Donation Will Be Used:
1.) To pay our actors, our designers, our stage manager and the director. It is very important for us to be able to pay our artists.
2.) To pay for our marketing costs. Without marketing no one will know about The Basset Table and what it's about, as well as who we are as a company. The reality is that marketing is very expensive. Your donation would help us market to reach audiences that could come and see our play. Having audiences come and see this play is so important because it is such an important story for everyone to hear. Audiences will leave changed.
3.) Our rehearsal space and performance space. Rental spaces are also very expensive and we need them in order to rehearse and put on our production. Your donation will help us pay for these expensive spaces and make our show the best it can be.
Why Donate to Us?
Did you know there is a huge gender gap in American theatre? Only about 22 percent of all current productions are female-authored nationally. Those numbers are even lower for women lighting, set and sound designers. At PTP our core company members consist all of female theatre artists and we make it our goal to produce work written by women, directed and designed by women because we strive to close the gender gap and to be heard as valid artists in our community.
