At the Steveston Historical Society, we are currently in the rehearsal stages of our historic summer walking tour series Steveston Alive!: Walking Tour Vignettes. This walking tour series, in its third year, promotes the history of Steveston through five entertaining and educational vignettes led by a professional actor as tour guide. We are currently seeking donations for this year’s production.
As we are an organization with little funding, we rely on the help of donors and community members to run our programs. In 2017 and 2018 this production reached a combined nearly 350 attendees, as well as nearly that many again in passers-by who stopped to watch a portion of the production. Students who were involved gained valuable theatre experience, and many returned for a second year. With the support of our community, I know we can make the 2019 production the best yet.
Here are some ways that your donation helps us:
- adopt an actor ($500+) - this covers the cost of one of our ten student actors, including costume maintenance, refreshments during productions, and honorariums, as well as helping with marketing and audience materials
- marketing support ($200+) - help us market the vignettes so we can attract a wider audience
- printed materials ($300+) - help us print materials for our audiences
- dry-cleaning for one or more costumes ($100 each)
Any amount helps, and every dollar you give helps our production be the best it can be.
