Soo Theatre Project Legacy Fund
With the STARS (Soo Theatre Arts Resource Studios) program well established and boasting over 400 students during the past school year; the dividing wall in the theater down; new seats installed; outstanding theatrical performances a regular thing; and a new, full-time executive director in place, the time has come for the Soo Theatre Project to take another leap forward.
Much of what has been accomplished so far has been done with sheer people power—sweat equity in the purest sense—an enormous gush of volunteer labor. There is no way you could pay people to work as hard as these people are working in a labor of love.
But volunteer labor can accomplish only so much. While tourist dollars are very welcome and summer entertainment a part of our celebration of a short season, the theater's primary function is to serve the people of the Sault area—to bring them the joy of the theatrical experience and to educate them and their children in the theater arts. We cannot escape the fact that our primary season is winter and an unheated auditorium is unusable for much of the year. Money is needed to install heat in the auditorium; to develop the building's second floor to better serve students and provide office space; to install an elevator; to install the equipment donated by the Mackinaw Crossings Theater; and more.
Soo Theatre volunteers and directors have proven that the Soo Theatre Project is here for the long run. While we've worked hard and accomplished much, we now need your help in the form of cash donations. Please fill out a Legacy Fund donation sheet and send it with your tax-deductible donation to the Soo Theatre Project, Inc., 534 Ashmun, Sault Ste. Marie, MI 49783-1908. (The donation sheet will help us record and acknowledge your gift properly.)
For more information, please download the Legacy Fund brochure or pick one up at the STP office.
