About Theatre NOVA

As you know, we had to shut down in March of 2020 due to the pandemic. Fast forward to nine months later, and there's still no knowing how long Theatre NOVA will have to remain shuttered.
As of October 9, COVID-related legal restrictions on venues began to relax here in Michigan. Legally, we would be able to resume live programming, at 20% capacity, while adhering to strict social distancing requirements, both on stage and off. However, we have no plans to open our doors to the public until we are absolutely sure that we can keep all of you safe. There is no production that is worth risking the life of any member of our community.

Without revenue from ticket sales and subscriptions, 70% of our annual operating revenue is lost. 
Thankfully, we have no debt. However, the inability to produce shows puts us at risk of losing our space and staff. The following are the bare minimum expenses needed to keep Theatre NOVA alive.

Our monthly expenses:
Rent: $5,835
Electricity: $500
Insurance: $100
TOTAL: $6,435

Patreon is a "set it and forget it" sustaining membership platform. When you become a Patron of Theatre NOVA on Patreon, you make a pledge today at whatever level you're comfortable with, fill in your info, and Patreon does the rest, charging you monthly on an ongoing basis.

Then, your donation goes to work each month covering overhead costs at Theatre NOVA and keeping the theatre alive.

So please, consider plugging us into your monthly budget at whatever level feels comfortable for you. You can always change it later if you need to.

Q: What happens if we fall short?
A: Every donation, small or large, will help us get further down the road towards remaining solvent.

Q: What happens if we go over?
A: Every dollar we raise over $6,435 will be shared with our staff (currently all on furlough) actors, directors, designers, and playwrights, who are out of work and hurting. We hope you'll give generously to help us help them.

Q: How long does my donation continue?
A: You can cancel or change your level of support any time you wish.

Your support through this difficult time will keep our home fires burning until our stage lights can shine once more.
