LAW PARTNERING THEATRE
Call for Theatre Partner – May 2017 & May 2018
I am writing to the members of Edmonton’s not-for-profit, professional theatre community on behalf of the Players de Novo – a volunteer group from Edmonton’s legal community that for the past 10 years has organized the production of an annual play with a cast made up of local lawyers and judges. The goal each year is to raise funds to be shared equally between the partnering theatre company and the Victoria School Foundation for the Arts, our host for the event.
To qualify – The theatre organization should be a professional, not-for-profit organization, with Canada Revenue Agency status to issue charitable receipts. We may entertain other applicants, but this is our primary target group for theatre partners. CRA status is critical.
It is now time to find an interested theatre partner for MAY 2017 and May 2018. Previous partner organizations have suggested to us that we make a call for partners 2 years in advance and so this call is for May 2017 & 2018. If your company would like to be considered, please submit a proposal to the writer no later than Monday, 11 September 2015.
When submitting your pitch, it might be helpful to:
- Give a bit of information about your company and why you are submitting. If there is an urgent need, tell us about that. (For example, Free Will Players – ‘our tent blew away and now we are forced indoors.’) If there is a special project, tell us about that
- Talk about your proposed director(s).
- Tell us about your administrative capabilities. The task is a heavy one, with many masters looking for info
- Propose a play or two, and why. When selecting a play, please be aware that for our own purposes we want a larger cast show, with hopefully a balance of male and female roles, and with varying age ranges. Makes it easier to sell tickets.
