Keeping a great community theatre going can be challenging sometimes.

There is no doubt, the effort is worth it.

CWP has been your community theatre for nearly 5 decades, and the future of the theatre remains bright.

But - we are suddenly facing some urgent and unexpected challenges - and we need your help.

In the past few weeks, our air conditioning systems have had several failures and we are facing an estimated $5,000 to $6,000 in unbudgeted expenses to make it right. This includes repairs and the rental of temporary systems.

April and May are already one of the costliest times of the year for CWP as we work to pay an estimated $25,000 in royalties for the exciting season ahead. (We want to announce it as soon as we can!) We just paid almost $6,000 for Annie, our season opener.

And of course, we still have to pay our regular monthly expenses like rent, utilities, etc.

With the addition of thousands of dollars in emergency expenses, we have to ask - can you make a contribution to help at this pivotal moment?

We are excited to announce that a generous and passionate CWP supporter will MATCH the first $5,000 we raise DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR.

Your gift can be DOUBLED. And it will make all the difference as we face the challenge at hand.

Please, if you can, help with your donation as soon as possible.

To tell it like it really is - all things considered - we need to raise $20,000 by June 15th.

For the air conditioning emergency.

For royalties.

For regular monthly expenses.

For a great community theatre that:

  • Helps bring people together around a common passion.

  • Enriches the fabric and quality of life for the people it serves.

  • Builds understanding and tolerance.

Thank you for your support.
