Not only have thousands of our community members experienced our productions, but many of you have decided to support our work with generous donations. So far this season, we have raised more than $4,000! For a small company like ours, this is a big step. But there's so much more to do.
The best way to make great theatre is by hiring professional artists. Theatre is a massively time-consuming endeavor, and hiring artists not only allows a company to support local talent, but it provides a higher quality theatrical experience to you, our community.
Thanks to your support...
the QC Theatre Workshop is now a professional theatre company!
Beginning with our next production - A Steady Rain - all Workshop actors, staff, and designers will be paid for their time and talents. Initially, these stipends will be very small, as we simply do not have the financial ability to pay artists what they're worth...yet! But this is an important step, and as we grow our financial resources - with your help - we will increase these stipends and continue to secure the brightest talents in the Quad Cities.
Think of what we have accomplished so far with an all-volunteer staff...
- the dynamic two-man drama RED
- the groundbreaking and powerful locally-written A Green River
- the heartwarming and heartbreaking concert revue Last Call
- the wacky and hilarious blockbuster Bat Boy: The Musical
...and those are just four of the ten shows we have presented, all under our "Pay What It's Worth" ticket pricing policy, which guarantees every member of our community equal access to theatre, regardless of financial means.
Just think of what we can accomplish as a professional theatre company!
The future is bright for the Workshop. We're glad you're along for the ride!Tyson Danner
