The "Theatre For All" Initiative
Fly North Theatricals was founded on one principle: Theatre is a fundamental right. However, there are two problems... one that's obvious and another that's also obvious but often overlooked.
The obvious one: Theatre is expensive for creators.
The overlooked one: Theatre is expensive for the audience.
That's why we began our "Theatre For All" Initiative, a subsidized ticket program in partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri and the Kranzberg Arts Foundation that helps provide access to those in need throughout the St. Louis region for which the theatre is cost-prohibitive. Being a booming theatre town, this is a very large intersection of the St. Louis community. As of December 2019, FNT has donated over $1000 worth of tickets for the upcoming 2020 season but -- if you're willing to help us -- that's just the beginning.
How Can I Help?
It's an age old question: How do we reconcile expense with accessibility? This is where you come in.
As a non-profit (501c3) theatre company, your donation to FNT is tax deductible and there are a few different ways to help out:
1) Make a sustainable donation on our Patreon. By giving at any level, you receive a range of perks from exclusive content to VIP events. An example: If just half of our small-but-mighty Facebook following (about 500 people as of December 2019) gave as much as a Netflix account ($12.99/month), we'd make our yearly production budget. (Seriously.)
2) Make a one-time donation at the bottom of this page. Just click the yellow donate button.
3) Buy tickets and purchase merch. While this is not tax-deductible, this is the easiest and most obvious way to support a theatre company. This is why we're doing this, after all. Come see these cool things we're making and in return, we'll make more.
Why is this so important?
Theatre builds communities.
Theatre is made of stories that aren't yours. At FNT, We believe that all theatre is community theatre because without a community, there is no theatre and without the stories a theatre tells, there is no community.
Every contribution counts. Please consider supporting Fly North Theatricals in our effort to make new, high quality theatre and to make it accessible for everyone.
And thank you.
