HELP ENSURE THE FUTURE OF
NEW ORLEANS THEATRE

As we approach the end of 2022, we at The NOLA Project have much to look back on with gratitude. Because of your support, this year saw TNP produce our largest family production (TREASURE ISLAND), a regional premiere celebrating Black women (SCHOOL GIRLS), the return of our Summer Intensive for teens (POWER LINE), a world premiere take on a classic (SEAGULL), and a new play about our 21st century gig culture (CRAIGSLISTED). We returned to our New Orleans community in a bold way, and now in the midst of our 18th season, we are proud to consider ourselves a New Orleans art institution.

 

But that’s not to say times have been easy. Theatres nationwide have struggled mightily in returning to full production in a world that has changed peoples’ work habits and social habits, including their theatre-going. Our industry has lost a great many artists both to other fields of work and other, less positive factors. Everything is different, The NOLA Project included! One thing we’ve held closely as truth is that theatre is precious, and the loss of it impacts a community in reverberating ways.

 

That is why we ask for your support today. Please join us in our year-end campaign to raise $20,000 for The NOLA Project and ensure our staying power in New Orleans. With ticket sales covering only 50% of our annual expenses (and even less post-pandemic), we rely on the generosity of our community of patrons and donors. Your generous gift can make the difference in ensuring our survival.

 

In these precarious and uncertain times, art institutions like The NOLA Project must remain innovative and flexible in order to survive. But without your support, we can only go so far. Please give today, and give generously. Theatre changes lives, educates audiences, and enlivens communities—but only if it exists. Please help us ensure our future and the future of theatre arts in New Orleans. 

Gratefully Yours,

Your Friends at The NOLA Project
