THEATRE IN PROCESS

SP1516-mini-goal-4-22-16-1000

As of 4/22/16, we are just $129 away from our $1,000 mini-challenge goal! If 13 people gave $10, we’d meet our challenge. Help us cross the finish line by April 30.

In total, we have raised $4,042 toward our season goal of $5,000. That’s 81% of our goal! We can do this! Donate to the 2015-16 Supporting Players Drive!

BIG NEWS ABOUT TECHNOLOGY AT DRAMASHOP

BIG NEWS!!! See the aluminum lighting trusses in this photo? We rented them last year for use in ANGELS IN AMERICA. They greatly expanded our ability to enhance our productions through lighting design.

trussWe’re VERY excited to share that we are purchasing our very own lighting truss, thanks in part to your support! We hope to eventually purchase a second truss and some new lighting equipment, possibly with the help of some technology grants. These purchases improve the artistic quality of the bold, creative productions we bring to the stage.

Help support Dramashop as we focus on technology and sustainability. Make YOUR donation. You can actually see the difference your donation makes.

OUR MISSION

The mission of Dramashop is to provide entertaining and provocative theatrical experiences designed to challenge, educate and engage the Erie community.

 

OUR VISION

At Dramashop, we believe there is value in every step of the creative process, not just the end product. We believe there is value in the creation and production of theatrical works, and that much of the magic of theatre happens before the audience arrives.

Dramashop aims to engage the community not just in the finished product we produce – innovative contemporary theatre – but as participants in the process of bringing theatre to life and in the exploration of diverse characters, situations and texts. We hope to challenge people to examine society, examine themselves and see our world from alternative viewpoints.

Dramashop will empower creative people, including actors, writers, directors and designers, with opportunities to develop their skills, explore their talents and make connections with other artists. We will provide free and low-cost educational opportunities designed to challenge people to find their inner artists and explore their own creative talents as a means of personal growth.

We believe theatre is a powerful art form and a significant agent for change. Through the exploration of theatre, we can achieve a greater understanding of our world and a greater understanding of ourselves.
