Prizes will range from tickets to upcoming performances, gift cards to local restaurants and businesses, and theatre merchandise. As a not-for-profit organization every dollar earned goes right back into their mission of presenting the highest quality of music, theatre and dance events at affordable prices. Centenary Stage Company strives to make the performing arts a vital, accessible part of our community by presenting varied, dynamic, and professional programs and artists that entertain, inspire and educate.
Cancellations in the spring of 2020 due to the public health crisis, in addition to the lowered audience capacity restrictions this past season, means that the Stage Company have lost about $555,000 in ticketing revenue compared to regular seasons, the majority of which goes to their guest artists and production costs. Support of the Centenary Stage Company directly assists in attracting distinguished talent, such as, actors, designers and directors with national reputations, as well as a diverse array of professional musicians and dance companies.
Contributions to the company also provides a platform for emerging women playwrights through the Women Playwrights Series to explore new perspectives and share their plays (many of which are Emmy, PEW, and PEN USA award winners), as well as, influences the growth and development of over 4,000 students annually through the critically acclaimed Young Performers Workshop, TYRO Acting Program, Young Audience Series Touring Company and the Folger Shakespeare Library in D.C.; Shakesperience: NJ. Additionally, Centenary Stage Company uses funds donated from the community to create artistic opportunity for all; from accessibility friendly programming to free events and beyond.
