On with the show.
"As an alumnus, and now Artistic Director of Studio 58, contributing to the On with the Show campaign was an easy decision for me, and a wonderful way to ensure the continuance of an excellent theatre experience for our audience now and in the future. Please join me now!" - Courtenay Dobbie, Artistic Director Studio 58
Studio 58, with the support of the Langara College Foundation, is launching a capital campaign for new theatre seats. The campaign will run from September to December 2021, with the goal of installing the seats over the holidays.
Originally installed in 1992, the seats served the theatre well, but their replacement is desperately needed. The Studio 58 theatre seats are at the end of their lives, and at a point that they cannot be further repaired. Some of these seats have already been refurbished and are now damaged beyond salvation.
Our goal is to raise $180,000 to replace our seats with a new retractable seating system and increase our audience size by 25%. We can only make this dream a reality with the support of you, our patrons.
Please consider making a donation to help to create a comfortable and distraction-free environment to see our student-led theatre productions. It's not too late to make your mark with a plaque!
For donations over $750, donors can be recognized with a seat plaque. Only 125 seats are available for naming. Naming a seat is easy and can be done in one payment or through a flexible payments plan: either monthly ($21/month) or annually ($250/year) for up to three years. Need a companion seat? Consider a donation of $1,400 or more and name a pair of seats. All donations of $20 or more are eligible for a tax receipt.
We thank you for your support! Your generosity will ensure that the inspiring performances of our students are felt by our audiences without uncomfortable distractions.
