Help Round House continue to enrich our community in the face of the COVID-19 crisis

About the Project

In this time of uncertainty, Round House Theatre's core values of community, integrity, and empathy feel more important than ever. Given recent events, we want to give you an honest update about where Round House stands today and how you can help secure our future. 

Our 2019-20 Season was on track to be a record-breaking season for Round House: 

  • All three shows performed this season rank among the top-10 highest grossing shows in Round House history;
  • Our free ticket initiatives, Free Play and On The House, provided nearly 6,000 free tickets to local residents who otherwise would be unable to attend live theatre; and
  • Only a little over two weeks ago, the dynamic conversation between our artistic team and our donors at the Inside Look of Cost of Living created palpable excitement for the show's April opening. 
Then suddenly, faced with an unprecedented health crisis, we made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of our season and our annual gala - the right decision for the safety of our community, but a tremendous loss in revenue for Round House. 

Thanks to the hard work of our staff and the guidance of our Board, Round House entered this crisis in a strong financial position. However, the disruption to our business will have a significant impact on our ability to sustain the theatre. Therefore, we are launching the Round House Resilience Fund.

We ask you to consider making a contribution to Round House to help us achieve our clear short-term goals, including: 
  • finding innovative ways to help artists who are out of work, especially our resident artists and education teaching artists;
  • sharing meaningful artistic and education content online; and
  • supporting our IT infrastructure so that we can continue to connect with our community in the weeks and months ahead. 
With your help, Round House will continue to enrich our community through bold, outstanding theatrical and educational experiences. We look forward to welcoming you back to Round House for our 2020-2021 Season that is sure to evoke wonder, excite imaginations, and provide some much-needed magic. 

We are grateful for your support.
