Unique ventures require unique support

Three Stories High: Ethan Lipton, The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik, The CardinalsEach one of the three performances planned for Three Stories High will be out of the ordinary, and we know that making these types of opportunities available is artistically important. Providing elevated experiences, however, is not a profit-making venture for us. Since these productions are, by design, small-scale works, we cannot match the fiscal returns of our typical larger venues. In addition, the extended number of performances means additional expenses. We do not want to raise our ticket prices in order to offer these small-venue engagements because that would severely limit access to them to the public—and that’s completely contrary to our goal of sharing the widest range of theatre experience with everyone.

In answer to this dilemma, several Guest Star lead supporters have generously contributed above and beyond their annual Convos donation to help make this project a success. With their support – and, we hope, yours, too, – we will offset our increased expenses for travel visas, meals, accommodations, venue rental and labor, just to name a few. And of course, these are all multiplied three, seven, and sometimes 21 times.
