We are MidCity Productions and we aren't your grandpappy's theatre company. We started because we were tired of seeing safe, easy, and, frankly, boring theatre being produced. There is so much material out there that doesn't get showcased because the content might not appeal to EVERYONE or a character says a dirty word, but deserves to be seen and heard. That's where we come in. We want to challenge our audiences, as well as our actors, to go beyond what they deem as 'safe' and trek into a territory that deserves to be explored.

With your support we will expand the horizons of theatregoers, actors, and directors in New York. We will give new playwrights a chance to have their voice heard. We will start to reshape the landscape of Indie- and Off-Off-Broadway theatre.

We want to leave our fans with an experience. We want them to talk about what they saw from us for weeks and weeks after the curtain drops. We want to create 'lasting theatre'. Just because a show is closed and you have left the house doesn't mean that the show is over.

But we also don't want to be relevant for just 5 months out of the year while we are producing shows. We are introducing something that I think is quite revolutionary: a TV station of sorts bringing you programming to enjoy year round, even when we aren't mounting a show. We will be bringing you four different episodes twice a month, that's eight episodes, on everything from proper audience etiquette to rapid fire interviews with industry professionals.

Now, what will your patronage actually bring us? A very fair question. With your continued and ongoing support, we will be able to rely less and less on hat-in-hand fundraising methods which we are oh so fond of. Your patronage will go towards:

  • Theatre Rental Costs
  • Rehearsal Studio Rental Costs
  • Salaries for our actors, directors, designers, and crew
  • Marketing and Advertising Materials (flyers, posters, postcards, etc.)
  • Administrative Costs (website upkeep, subscriptions, business cards, etc.)
  • Copyright fees for shows
  • Costumes
  • Props
  • Sound and Light rentals
  • Travel Expenses
  • Any other cute, surprise costs that are involved in running a theatre company
We want this YouTube Series and our Patreon efforts to provide us with all the year-round fundraising that we need so we won't have to rely on the other methods.

And all it takes is five minutes of your time to become a patron of MidCity Productions. Think about it and sign-up today.

Goals
$0 of $150 per Video
As artists, there are a lot of people that inspire us.  Once we reach this goal, we will release exclusive, Patron-only content where we do our own little 'tip of the hat' to our idols.  This could be anything from a cover of a song, reenactment of a favorite movie/tv scene, a comedy skit, anything.  We want to show you all who it was that made us do what we want to do.
