Support City Theatre

Introducing the “(Re)Open The Red Doors Campaign”

A fundraising initiative for City Theatre’s Future.

The Covid-19 pandemic has been devastating to the arts and culture sector. City Theatre alone has seen a loss of nearly $2 million in revenues from contributions, ticket sales, and other sources.

The Red Door Campaign – named after City Theatre’s iconic red doors on Bingham Street – is the organization’s comeback strategy with a simple goal:

To ensure that when it is safe to re-open to the public with indoor performances, City Theatre has the funds necessary to do it right.

Established by the board of directors and members of the its Honorary Board, the Red Door Campaign represents a fight for the future of City Theatre – it will combat this current global emergency so that it does not serve as a fatal blow.

The prognosis is good. But we need your help.

With the early success of the Red Door Campaign, City Theatre has restored a majority of its staff and invested over $75,000 in direct fees and payments to artists.

None of us know how long the crisis will be with us. But when it is over, we have every intention of coming back stronger than ever.

Please join Campaign Chairs David Betts, Carol Brown, Judy Cheteyan, Alex Condron, and Beth Newbold, as well as the board and staff, in supporting City Theatre with a tax-deductible contribution today.

Your support means the world to us. And we need it now more than ever.
