“All volunteer organization, bringing the best of Broadway to Indy”
First of all, I hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. We miss seeing you, but we’ve been following the advisement of the CDC, local and state governments and have not had any shows, rehearsals, or operations within our theater since mid-March. We have also made the difficult decision to cancel our summer youth productions for this year, which includes our Young Adults production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, the Children’s Workshop in Musical Theatre production of Beauty and the Beast, Jr., and the Young Artists production of Crazy for You.
Footlite Musicals has been bringing high-quality community theater to Indianapolis since 1955, thanks, in large part, to your support. Hundreds of our all-volunteer staff and actors of our “family” cherish the opportunity to be heard through song and dance, creative building and design, directing, choreographing, and lighting and sound technology. There is something for everyone, and all are welcome. You have done so much for Footlite, but right now we must ask for more. Without your subscriptions, ticket purchases, memberships, volunteerism, and donations, we would not be here today.
Due to the cancellation of our summer shows, Footlite has no revenue coming in from mid-March through September. Unfortunately, we still have expenses to pay. Despite cutting back as much as we can on cleaning, utilities, insurance, etc., we still have costs of roughly $6,000 per month to pay. Right now, our cash reserves will be completely depleted before we get to the new opening of Mamma Mia! on September 18.
We need to raise enough donations between now and September to at least cover the basic operational costs of Footlite. That means we need to raise $30,000 from supporters like you to ensure that Footlite Musicals will be able to continue bringing musical theater performances for you and your family and friends to enjoy for decades to come.
Please consider making a donation, either by giving online or by mailing a check to Footlite Musicals, C/O National Bank of Indianapolis, 107 N. Pennsylvania St. Suite 100, Indianapolis, IN 46204. No amount is too small. Any and all help you can give is appreciated!
We look forward to hopefully seeing you, and creating with you, in the fall.
