Light the Stage: COVID-19 Relief Campaign
During these unprecedented times of social distancing and business closures, we recognize that many of us are experiencing a shared sense of stress. As a non-profit organization we find ourselves in a unique position and one of great financial strain as our doors are closed. Between maintenance costs, mortgage payments, revenue loss from the cancellation of the remaining 2020 Season, and several educational classes, we are left in a position we have never faced before.
It is now more than ever that we need your help to survive this time and prepare for a better one, where we can turn the lights back on and welcome actors and patrons alike back through our doors. You can help us continue to build on our passion for the arts and provide opportunities to our community by partnering with the Marietta Center for the Arts so that we can keep Susquehanna Stage’s theatre productions and our volunteer led educational classes alive!
