Like most non-profits, revenue from ticket sales and concessions takes care of just the cost to produce shows and pay a portion of our ongoing operating expenses. Charitable, financial contributions are put toward upgrades to equipment, special projects and community programs such as our annual $1,000 college scholarship and ProjectSTAGE for budding, young actors. In short charitable donations and legacy gifts keep our footlights glowing!
Recent donations have allowed Aurora Players to purchase a much needed sound system for Theatre In Hamlin Park. Financial gifts were also used to purchase a new laptop for the box office and a printer to replace one that was barely operational. Next year, we hope to paint the outside of the Historic Roycroft Pavilion that houses our theater and complete renovations behind the stage. Perhaps you can help us reach these goals. Every donation, no matter how small, is valuable and will be put to good use!
