In this time of giving back, one simple request

Dear Readers,

I want to thank you. Because of you, DC Theatre Scene is celebrating its 10th birthday.

In 2005, we launched a simple website with a simple goal: to bring attention to the work of the excellent small theatre companies who were struggling to get the attention of the major newspapers.

If you go through our archives today, you can read over seven thousand articles about professional theatres, from the largest to the smallest. More than half of these posts are reviews. All are in service to the great and important work of DC-area theatres.

This holiday season, as you remember to show love for your favorite theatre companies, I hope you will consider a gift to us – the people who bring you their work year round.

A contribution of $25, $50, $100, or even more will help keep us online and growing for the coming year.

If you are a regular visitor to our site, you know about our writing, listings and ticket deals. Here are more reasons we ask for your support.

DC Theatre Scene has become a digital history of area theatre. You can reach back in our archives to such important projects as the Mary Goldwater Awards.  Every week, we are asked to personally connect playwrights to theatre companies, performers to resources, audiences to shows. Every day, thousands of people visit our site.

Help us pave the way for the next decade of DC Theatre Scene with a generous gift today.

When you make a tax-deductible* gift to DC Theatre Scene, you will be helping us build the infrastructure we need to make the site even better, support our Maker Audience Award, bring tourists to our theatres and celebrate the dazzling work by professional theatres in Washington, Baltimore, and New York City.

Whether you are an audience member or theatremaker, I hope you will consider helping us grow with a contribution.

If you can’t decide how much to give, consider donating the cost of your last theatre ticket.

From all of us here at DC Theatre Scene, we wish you love in this holiday season, and hope to see you in the theatre next year.
