  Gifting PCT 

  Pittsburg Community Theatre prides itself on providing high quality, affordable theatre productions to everyone in the Pittsburg Community and the surrounding area. The PCT Board of Directors is creating a Betty Brown Legacy Fund for the Performing Arts and welcomes your generous gift and values your partnership to continue her vision and dream. Ticket sales account for only 65% of all the expenses which is why we reach out to you for assistance. As a community theatre, we understand how it takes a village to make the magic happen and we appreciate any and all assistance.

 

You too can partner with other people or businesses to give at a specific level. If that is your desire, we can list all names on publicity collateral or you can choose to list it under a pseudonym. 

 

Please contact Dianna Schepers if you have any questions:

Pittsburg Community Theatre is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your contribution is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. 

 

Thank you very much for your consideration.



  Betty Brown Legacy Fund for the Performing Arts

Pittsburg Community Theatre Founder - Betty Brown, is now formally retired. Having established PCT in 1973 and seen it grow from an adult education program to a thriving non-profit theatre company, Betty’s principal goal was to bring live theatre at affordable prices to the Pittsburg community.

 

The PCT Board of Directors want to ensure that her dream and legacy continues and in so doing, are establishing a Legacy Fund to safeguard PCTs future.

 

The goal for the 2017-18 season is to raise $25,000. Gifts made to this fund go to cover the cost of production rights, which is the principal expense incurred each season. Without the production rights, PCT cannot perform any play or musical.  All gifts are now applied to this fund.

 

Your gift guarantees that PCT can carry on Betty’s dream and to provide both young and older performers the opportunity to learn about theatre and hone their craft.

 Show Expenses

Ticket sales cover approximately 60% of the cost to put on a main stage production.  To help you understand where gifts given to PCT are utilized, here is a summary of average show expenses:

 

SHOW EXPENSES:                            PLAY                  MUSICAL
Production Rights/Scripts              $550                     $4300

Ca. Theatre* Expenses                 $4000                    $10,000

PCT works hard to repurpose props, costumes and set pieces whenever possible. We also borrow from other theatre companies and look to our supporters when  special props are needed. Basically, we work as frugal as possible.

Your gift helps not only cover the production right expenses, but to help us enhance the shows production value.

 

Thank you for your continued support.


Any gift amount is appreciated.
