Support Us

Playcrafters Barn Theatre is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. Every dollar we receive goes right back into making the theatre experience available to all within our community.

The money collected from tickets sales are only a small part of the finances needed to run our organization. While ticket income covers our day-to-day operating expenses, other revenue sources are needed for maintenance and capital improvement projects.

Playcrafters operates a variety of annual, ongoing and determinate fund-raising initiatives to keep our equipment and facilities in a state of good repair.

Patron Program

Our Members and Patrons are our core constituency. Through annual tax-deductible donations, Playcrafters is able to conduct on-going maintenance and upkeep to our facilities. For more information about becoming an active Playcrafters Member, visit the Get Involved page. Patron donations are welcomed by PayPal or mail and are gratefully acknowledged in our program, lobby, and on our website. See below for our mailing address.

Benefit Program

The core mission of Playcrafters is to make the theater experience available to all. While we are a non-for-profit corporation ourselves, to accomplish our mission we stage benefit performances of our shows for other charitable organizations. These benefit shows are sold at a flat rate of $750 or $850 for a Saturday matinee. Particpating not-for-profits can sell tickets to these performances themselves and use the funds for their own programs. Many participants donate the tickets to those in the community who may not have regular opportunities to attend live theatrical performances. For more information on how to take part in our Benefit Program, visit our benefits page.

Available Benefit Dates*

We are a volunteer organization, and sometimes it takes us a bit to update our website. Dates here are not guaranteed, but we will try to keep this list as updated as possible.

New Lighting System

It's been over a decade since we've updated our lighting system. We're looking to improve or replace the following:

We hope Playcrafters can continue to rely on the generous support of its benefactors and hope that those new to Playcrafters consider supporting our worthwhile endeavours.
