Stolen Chair Theatre Company Fund Drive

Stolen Chair Theatre Company is currently seeking to raise money for the last half of their 2007 season. They're specifically seeking to broaden their small donor base, so your contribution of $10 - $24 bucks will go a long way. They're halfway to their $10,000.00 goal.

One of the fantastic things they've done to make generous support easier, is set up a monthly payment option. You can give this company $120 a year at $10 a month. Like NPR or PBS. Your dollar, though, will go a lot further. Maybe they'll share with other companies how that was set up, so that others can follow suit. It's a very, very good idea.

Read up on it here. Set up for a $10 a month payment. You won't notice it, but they will.

Anyone familiar with their work who would like to expound on its virtues? That's what the comments section is for!

While I'd love to expound on our company's virtues, I'll leave that to others :)

Instead, I'll take up your other request and share the secrets of recurring donations. Paypal makes all of this VERY easy to set-up. Once you have created a Paypal account, click on Merchant Services, then click on Subscriptions & Recurring Payments. You type in your information and they give you a button to paste into your website's html. And then, if you're like us, you'll decide their button isn't informative enough and create your own...

Thanks again for the post, Matt.

Are you going to be able to make it to see Commedia dell'Artemisia at the Brick this weekend or at the end of the month? A few of us really wanted to catch IWAA but we were touring our show to Swarthmore college during your first few shows and may or may not have to have a brush-up during your Friday night show. I'll do my best, though...

One day I'll be proud to say "I knew stolen Chair when..."

They're an incredibly talented theatre company that's doing some great work that you shouldn't miss -- they have a couple of shows coming up, check them out this weekend at The Brick Theater's Prenentious Festival.

If you haven't seen Stolen Chair Theatre Company perform any of their original pieces, you're missing a nice slice of New York's theatre scene.

They seem to work magic with apparently very little money, so it's nice to know any donation is appreciated. Maybe a little more financial support will allow them a larger venue so that it's not as hard to score a ticket because they're sold out!?

In addition to the Pretentious, can't wait to see the next installment of your CineTheatre tetralogy!
