“I can no other answer make but thanks, and thanks, and ever thanks.” -William Shakespeare,Twelfth Night
Because of your attendance and financial support, 2012 has been a remarkable year for Boston Court:
- Boston Court is awarded its first grant by The Shubert Foundation.
- Boston Court is selected by the American Theatre Wing(the organization that gives out the Tony Awards) as one of ten recipients of a 2012 National Theatre Company Grant, awarded to companies that “have articulated a distinctive mission, cultivated an audience, and nurtured a community of artists in ways that strengthen and demonstrate the quality, diversity, and dynamism of American theatre.”
- Boston Court is recognized with one of eight BEST (Building Excellence in Small Theatre) Awards by The Les and Sheri Biller Family Foundation.
- Boston Court joins Occidental College and A Noise Within in announcing a new, three-year joint venture with The Edgerton Foundation to bring new work to Boston Court as well as provide hands-on internships to college students majoring in the arts.
Boston Court continues to garner national attention for the things that you’ve known all along: We are an adventurous theatre company that has always operated without a financial deficit—how many non-profits can say that in these economic times?
Here’s the key: Our success is because of you. Ticket sales and foundation support only cover about 25% of our annual budget. We count on the continued financial contributions of members like you to bring our stages to life.
We know that at year-end you receive many requests for support from organizations all over Southern California. We ask you to consider a tax-deductible donation to Boston Court today. Over the next few weeks, you’re going to hear from a few others whose longstanding associations with Boston Court you may or may not be familiar with: Founding Producing Director Eileen T’Kaye, longtime members and supporters Pat and Sylvia Holmes, and longtime staff member Cheryl Rizzo. I hope you will read and enjoy their stories of what Boston Court means to them.
We’ve got so many wonderful performances scheduled on both stages in the coming year. We can’t wait to share them with you! As always, I’d love to hear from you. Please call or email me at 626-683-6883 or MichaelS@BostonCourt.com.
Michael Seel, Executive Director
