Hi All,

We’re so grateful to you for being a part of The Barrow Group. Thank you.
One of the most common questions asked of us is “You have such a powerful training program and approach to acting – why don’t you produce more plays?”  Well, we are listening to you.

Our goal this coming year is to offer more productions and readings in our main stage and studio theaters, so that we can share our approach with more people beyond the classroom. This can only happen with your help.

(http://r20 NULL.rs6 NULL.jsp?f=001cYUcr6abQQWNSKu5_gDdH2pFAj5VP9any_-0JQ0LvQObJayGysmmH54XdVDS7T5AmZwu9hho6cy2KvPOjZjNmJZEIPRRsNdqCDUkIWJX1N8-DqZn4oAA4yvTeBiGS6CWUp3Dtpq_YIUBzsEKYZGwNa6wItB-3yn0CeDVSFWBuYJ9YhVXvUBA6K132IbIz13ypT2dAC-oczI=&c=EsOmpjky6Uae_TDFmUDKMn-qychwbsOwT8mTbSJsqUxKEMUpey-SLg==&ch=EOe3w6O831n4kV2Jx_rXfMQC89uxiZ9zdcpkjUiBzufLKCbh0oK0PQ==)In June, we will present Craig Wright’s THE PAVILION in our main stage theatre, featuring a cast of TBG students and alumni.  In January, our free public Reading Series will begin meeting the 2nd Sunday of every month in our studio theatre.  We’re thrilled to announce that next season, we plan on doing two main stage shows – in the fall, SHORT STUFF, and in the spring, a second production.
As you know, ticket sales cover only a fraction of total production expenses – that’s the nature of producing not-for-profit theater. Our donation goal for this coming year is $50,000, which will help make this programming possible.
This is where you come in – if you each chip in $20, the cost of a movie ticket and popcorn, we can easily reach this goal.  Please consider making a donation today and help us produce this coming season.  You can make a one-time or recurring donation at (http://r20 NULL.rs6 NULL.jsp?f=001cYUcr6abQQWNSKu5_gDdH2pFAj5VP9any_-0JQ0LvQObJayGysmmH_j9u-in_RnSYTIH_C_NhMWptco4rc3V5k1W-X9J-X6KJFdCDtWyyKiRdEaf4Lg40dqC4GA9Qz0Y8ubFENw_xo85A88cMdMnZne73Fny8TVPhgR0opOx2k_cCn8PkQ4ERw==&c=EsOmpjky6Uae_TDFmUDKMn-qychwbsOwT8mTbSJsqUxKEMUpey-SLg==&ch=EOe3w6O831n4kV2Jx_rXfMQC89uxiZ9zdcpkjUiBzufLKCbh0oK0PQ==).
Thanks so much for your feedback that you want to see more shows at The Barrow Group.
We do too.  You have a huge role to play in making this happen, and we’re so grateful for your support.
Have a great New Year!
All the best,

Lee, Seth, Robert, Porter, Farrah, Alyson, Elizabeth, Mark, Becca and Carmen
