As all of you know, theaters have been dark since early spring, summer shows have been cancelled, many fall performances have been postponed. This means that not only actors, but designers, backstage personnel, and behind-the-scenes “supporting cast” members are now unemployed.
We spoke to you last month about the Taking Care Fund, an initiative of TheatreWashington. The fund assists Washington area theater professionals experiencing medical emergencies and or loss of work due to the COVID-19 pandemic. You can learn more about the Taking Care Fund at http://theatrewashington.org/content/faqs-taking-care-our-own.
We asked you to make contributions, all of which are being shared evenly between Peace Mountain Theatre and the Taking Care Fund. Thank you to all of those who have contributed to date. If you have not already done so, please click here to make a donation to support the people who make theater possible. Any amount will be appreciated.
