It takes a community...

It takes more than tickets to make a show and here’s how you can help!!!

From rights and royalties to rent and scripts, staging a production is costly even when most of the work is done by volunteers who donate hundreds of hours.

While our volunteers are exceptionally creative and thrifty, even they can’t make bricks without straw. Take our typical musical, for example. The cost for these types of productions is more than $11,000 with allocations for building materials, paint, ticket stock, makeup, advertising, costumes, printing, photography, and properties. That’s not even the entire list.

And production costs aren’t the end. Tools in the scene shop often need to be repaired or replaced, set materials and properties wear out, computers and printers die. After a while, holding equipment together with bubblegum and baling wire just doesn’t work.

Although ticket sales cover a portion of CPP’s costs, they can’t assure funding for future productions. Nor can they assure funding for special programs like Family Theatre and Family Theatre Too, which are geared toward children, and Off Stage!, which takes theatre to seniors.

How can you help? Volunteer to work on a production, become a member, tell your friends about us, and make a contribution.
