You can make the most impact on the future right now by supporting Season 3!
Seasons 1 and 2 were outstanding, and it's because you were there to support us every step of the way! We put up seven main stage productions, a reading series of four works in response to the Baltimore Uprising, and a city-wide festival dedicated to new and under-produced works by female and trans* playwrights that collaborated with over 15 companies to produce almost 40 staged readings in six weeks. We produced the award winning Trans* Voices Workshop Series, which City Paper named Best Stage Series of 2016. We were named The Best New Theater in their Best of Baltimore 2015 Issue. We've built partnerships with Baltimore Shakespeare Factory, Baltimore Improv Group, Iron Crow Theatre, Fells Point Corner Theatre, Spotlighters Theatre, and The Strand Theatre Company, and many individual artists and businesses.
Since our creation in 2014 Cohesion Theatre Company has served the neighborhoods of Southeast Baltimore by bringing innovative theatrical performances and a passion for collaboration to all the work we do. Through our mission to showcase the unity in what most consider separate, and to highlight the humanity in all of us, Cohesion has been recognized several times for bringing a strong and timely social justice element to the work we produce. Cohesion’s work has also been featured locally and nationally in The Baltimore Sun, The New York Times, and USA Today. Other recognition includes the 2014 Innovative Arts Award from the Highlandtown Business Association, and the 2015 Justice for All Award from The Bad Oracle.
We are excited to live up to all that you've helped us build so far and continue to move the company and our mission forward as we move into Season 3. Will you come along with us and help us grow stronger and continue to thrive as we seek new and innovative ways to bring exciting works to Baltimore? A donation in any amount will be utilized to support our mission and the artists we work with.
As a contributor to Cohesion Theatre Company's success, there is no more important time to show your support than right now! The upfront costs of each season are considerable, and that is when we need your support the most. We've proven that we can stretch every dollar we have while bringing you captivating and inspiring work that also supports all the artists that we work with through stipends for their efforts.
This is where your financial contribution helps us to fuel our efforts. Things like space rental, utilities, marketing costs, and paying artists all take big bites out of our budget. We enjoy the thrill of finding ways to put on spectacular theatre with less than a shoestring, because there is a huge sense of accomplishment at the end. However, there are some things that our company mission won't allow us to skimp on. Our fine actors, outstanding crew, and award-winning designers all deserve to be paid well for their time and efforts. That's why over half of our season budget is dedicated to artist's stipends.
If you value the artistic vision and community presence that Cohesion has been able to foster thus far, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution right now to help us continue expanding those efforts in and through Season 3 and beyond.
