WHY SUPPORT 4TH LINE THEATRE?
What a wonderful season 2019 was! Two stunning world premiere plays, warm sunny days, music filled nights. If you were able to join us for our 2019, we want to thank you for your support of our original Canadian art. Audiences could not get enough of Beau Dixon’s Bloom: A Rock ’n’ Roll Fable and the music filled production. And then in August we were thrilled with the response to Robert Winslow and Ian McLachlan’s Carmel.
As we look ahead to 2020, we are so excited to celebrate our 29th season with two world premieres. In July, Deb Williams will be back at the farm directing Alex Poch-Goldin’s The Great Shadow. If you loved Alex’s first two shows for us - The Right Road to Pontypool and The Bad Luck Bank Robbers, you will not want to miss this one! And in August Kim is thrilled to be directing Maja Ardal’s murder mystery Wishful Seeing. Maja wrote The Hero of Hunter Street for us in 2016. Both playwrights are tried and true for the theatre and both of them have written sell-out plays for 4th Line.
Members are the bedrock of our theatre, and we need your support now more than ever as costs continue to rise. Our fall Membership Campaign is the first and most crucial initiative in our yearly fundraising campaign. Your financial contribution helps us to stay true to our mission to create and present important thought-provoking Canadian theatre for our audiences and to continue to unearth little-known stories and celebrate the unsung heroes of our region.
You can choose to target your support directly to our New Play Development program, our Emerging VOICES program, the Epic Women’s Directing project or you can choose to direct your donation to our areas of greatest need; to help strengthen programs and initiatives in development.
As the leading charitable, cultural institution in the region, we need your support to ensure that 4th Line Theatre remains healthy for many more seasons. We ask you to continue donating to support this special theatre. If you have never donated before, we ask you to consider joining with us to create a unique cultural experience. The artists, the stories, the audiences and the communities that inspire our work are all key parts of this unique creative enterprise that continues to evolve, improve and flourish. As donors, you make it all possible, and we thank you for your support!
