We are Equinox Theatre Company, a 501c3 non-profit organization that has been performing at the Bug Theatre for the past 9 seasons. We are a multiple award-winning theatre company that specializes in theater for people of all ages and income levels. We bring new and unique shows to the Bug stage, with a focus on cult hits, campy musicals, boundary-pushing theater and more. The result is a rabid and strong fan-base, filled with patrons who seek out what we do and love the way we do it.
It’s also no secret that the Navajo Street Arts District and the neighborhood we’ve supported for the past eight years has been going through some major change. The Denver Post has reported on it multiple times, as has Westword, and one drive up our charming little block showcases the rapid change and uncertain future of our small but mighty cultural district. Three of our neighboring art galleries have chosen to move and our friends at Patsy’s Inn Italian restaurant closed up shop last year. Clearly – the area is in major flux – as is the rest of the country. It’s a time in which the future of arts is uncertain and Federal funding opportunities for live theater are getting harder and harder to receive (if they survive at all.)
This is where we need your help. It’s important to us that we keep our ticket prices low, so that everyone – no matter their income level – is able to experience the beauty of live theatre. The cost of doing what we do also continues to go up. Each season we face higher rents as well as bigger and bigger expenses for things like rights, costumes, props and even paint and construction supplies. Frankly, these expenses are making our own future uncertain as well.
As we get ready to announce our 10th season at the beautiful and historic Bug Theatre, we are asking for your help. We have great packages available for small business, and you can offer your support for as little as $50. We have a wide-range of options available, or we’d be happy to discuss creating a sponsorship package uniquely suited to your business. We’re flexible and would love to speak with you!
Feel free to contact us at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org and thank you so much for your time and support! We look forward to serving you in 2018 for our exciting 10th season!
