You can help our artists create!

Since the pandemic closed theatres in March 2020, playwrights have been unable to share their plays on stage with audiences. But they’ve remained hard at work at home creating and developing new plays.

At Studio 180, we proudly support playwrights through our IN DEVELOPMENT program that gives them a helping hand as they develop new work that explores provocative social and political issues. Our CREATE Campaign aims to raise $13,000 by December 31st to support the development and digital presentation of new works by theatre artists Yolanda Bonnell, Marcel Stewart, Taylor Trowbridge and Jonathan Wilson in the second half of our 2021/2022 Season.

Because we have not had access to box office revenues due to theatre closures from the pandemic, we rely on support from individuals like you more than ever.

Help Yolanda, Marcel, Taylor and Jonathan create by making your donation today!

Your donation will provide our playwrights with the time, space, actors, equipment and other resources required to bring their ideas to life.

As an added incentive, you can donate in honour of one of our playwrights and all donations made before December 31st will be matched dollar-for-dollar (up to $7,000) by our board of directors, doubling your impact.

Thank you for helping our artists create! Studio 180’s work would not be possible without the generosity of donors like you. 

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