The annual patron drive for Munster Theatre Company helps to underwrite our season.  Non-musicals cost around $1000 to buy scripts and purchase the rights to perform the play; musicals cost around $3000!  That is before we build a set, make costumes or props, or create a special effect!

And we do more than just produce plays!  Here is a rundown of what we have accomplished in the last year, in spite of the pandemic:

  • A dozen students competed in the International Thespian Excellence Awards Program in January, with two of our entries moving on to Internationonal competition this June

  • We filmed and streamed three productions

  • Students participated in weekly improv workshops to continue honing their creative skills

  • Students connected with Broadway performers Celia Keenan-Bolger and Nicole Parker, as well as musical writer Rick Elice, through master classes.

And of course, we have a  history of placing at State and International competitions!

One big project we are hoping to fund with grants and other contributions is a projector and computer to run projections for shows. An amazing backdrop can really add a "wow" factor to a show.  However, the cost of renting backdrops can easily run thousands of dollars per show.  The latest projector technology would allow us to have as many backdrops as we want (even our own created backdrops) without the repeated costs.  This project will run about $10,000 to start up, but have no ongoing costs.  In fact, in just two seasons of using projections we would have paid for the cost of the projector and computer set-up.  We are seeking grant assistance to fulfill this project, but your donations will help us subsidize what a grant may be unable to provide.

Your tax deductible donation helps to keep our ticket prices low.  In addition, 25% of your contribution is set aside to offset our students' costs to attend the Indiana Thespians State Conference and the International Thespian Festival, where they showcase their talents among the best in the state and the world!
