ANNOUNCING OUR “PLACES, PLEASE!” CAMPAIGN!

“Places, Please!” is what stage managers announce just before the start of a show. It’s that exhilarating moment when the performers take their places in the wings where they can hear the audience chatter, seconds before the lights begin to fade, the crowd hushes and…

….the show begins. 

After two years of digital theatre programming, Studio 180 Theatre is finally returning to live, in-person performances in Fall 2022.

And we need YOUR help to make it happen!

Our “Places, Please!” Campaign aims to raise $10,000 by June 30th to directly support artist salaries in our 2022/23 Twentieth Anniversary Season.

Over the coming weeks, we’ll be announcing the details of our 22/23 Season — our biggest and most ambitious season ever. Your donation to our “Places, Please!” Campaign will directly support the livelihood of performers, who have been waiting years for theatres to reopen so they can perform for you again.

As an added incentive, we’ve received $5,000 in matching funds from anonymous donors and board members, so any donation you make will be matched dollar-for-dollar, doubling your impact.

Donate today to help Studio 180’s performers move from the wings to the stage!

We can’t wait to see you at the theatre again.

Ticket sales only cover 12% of our operating expenses, so we count on every dollar from individuals like you to fund our programming.
