Support Us

We are grateful for the dedicated support of individual donors and agencies from Boston and beyond. In particular, this year our work is supported in part by the Boston Cultural Council, a local agency which is funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, administered by the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture. Our work this year is also supported by EDVESTORS, a funding agency dedicated to expanding opportunities in the arts in the Boston Public Schools. Also the Lapham Foundation continues its generous support of our work.

The City Mission Society and the Ariel Group both helped start the company, developing many of the guiding principals and recruiting volunteer staff and funding our first amazingly successful season in 2005.

Rev. Brian Murdoch of the Emmanuel Episcopal Church.  A staunch supporter through the years, Brian ran a half way house for people re-entering the community after time in prison.

Sam Williams of the First Church of Roxbury, which housed our second season’s rehearsal process.

Johnstone Community Center housed our touring rehearsals in 2009.

Bromley Hall housed our third season’s rehearsals and opening show.

Project Place has been our home since the fall of 2009.
