Your contribution is integral to helping our community theater and the arts thrive in Ellensburg.
Community theater is truly dependent upon individuals, families, and local businesses who love and appreciate the arts. Valley Musical Theatre is no exception. We have been able to produce quality theater in the Kittitas Valley for 20 years, expressly because people like you have chosen to be involved.
There are ongoing opportunities not only for actors and singers, but for directors, designers, stage and tech crew, producers, musicians, and front of house volunteers.
What if you love theater, but don't want to be involved in a specific production? We need you too! As a community theater we want to keep ticket prices accessible; so we are also dependent upon donations and sponsors to help cover the increasing costs of licensing, costuming, sets, and equipment needs. We have two major needs that we are currently fundraising for:
New Microphones - we urgently need to replace 10 microphones that will become obsolete in 2020. Total amount needed: $8,500.
Warehouse/Barn or other Storage Facilities - Currently a large portion of our budget is paying for storage of VMT's props, costumes and sets. In an effort to be good stewards of VMT finances, we need to find a less expensive way to house these items - preferably all in one place. If you or someone you know has an outbuilding or large shed not currently being used, and would be interested in working with VMT on this project, please email the Executive Director, Jessica Solberg Black at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are also opportunities to sponsor a show and place ads for your local business in our playbills and quarterly newsletter.
