You know that feeling when you cross a giant to-do off your list? When you achieve a life-goal? That’s how we feel about #SUSPACE. We've been able to help our community with the vital resource of securing a place to do their work.
It IS fundamental. Any theatre artist can tell you, having a welcoming and affordable place to create, to try, to fail, to try better, and to let your visions become reality? Well, it’s priceless. But don’t take our word for it - here's Oncoming Productions' Sean Dillon, speaking about his experience renting #SUSPACE.
In addition to hosting rehearsals, we think SPACE looks pretty good with Theatre Coup d’Etat’s set for EQUUS in there (good work, set designer Megan Kedrowski, who, by the way, is also performing in our upcoming production of JUNE!)
We know there are a LOT of worthy companies vying for your attention and dollars tomorrow. If you can send some of your donation energy to Savage Umbrella, we would love that and be unbelievably appreciative. If you can send some more of your donation energy to the groups that have rented and are renting SPACE, hey, $21 buys them a 3-hour rehearsal at SPACE. You can plan your giving now - head on over to our GiveMN page. Find it here: https://givemn.org/fundraiser/Savageumbrella
Also, our fiscal sponsors, Springboard for the Arts, are adding $10 per donor for everyone who gives to us, up to the first 25 donors - that’s an extra $250 on the table for us, no matter how much you give!
As always, THANK YOU.
P.S. - You can check out Theatre Coup d’Etat’s EQUUS - at SPACE - the next two weekends, Friday-Monday at 7:30 pm. And please, please catch what is sure to be a hilarious and wrong show, The Moving Company’s LIBERTY FALLS, 54321 at The Lab Theatre, November 27 - December 20.
