Roseneath Theatre had an incredible 17-18 season, performing five productions to nearly 50,000 students across Canada and the United States. We travelled over 40,000 km and finally said good-bye to our touring truck which has travelled 350,000 km for us, bringing shows across Canada and the US! Roseneath employed over 50 artists with 5 full time staff, 5 part-time, a co-op student and an intern.
But this very busy year has left us with a deficit. Although the Canada Council had extra money to give away this year, Roseneath did not benefit, as we were literally the next on the list to receive an increase when the funding purse was empty. Our biggest sponsor informed us eight months into the season that they wouldn’t be renewing their donation this year. These two events were completely unexpected and left us with our jaws on the floor and a hole in our bank account.
So we’re holding an auction! And we need you to bid. And if nothing interests you, then donate! We need you to tell your friends, who can tell their friends, who can tell their friends so that someone can take home some of this great stuff and ensure that the kids who need it most won’t miss out on experiencing the best in theatre for young audience.
