Thank you for your consideration in backing St. Louis Actors’ Studio’s effort to raise funds for the sustainment of professional theater.
The Coronavirus has threatened extinction for millions of small businesses all over the world. The federal government has offered some help, but small professional theaters are not in line for that funding and the existing funding that relies on tax dollars is vanishing.
The Local and Regional Arts Commissions have already announced that many struggling organizations will not receive any money next year and those that will are only to receive 40% of what they have been granted in the past.
We are taking matters into our own hands to raise the funds necessary to sustain STLAS as we wait for the time that we can again produce our seasons of plays. In order to maximize this effort, we have successfully reached out to native St Louis artists that have made a name for themselves. Artists who began their careers on these very same stages.
We are proud to say that the following artists have all volunteered to help our St. Louis event:
Sterling K. Brown
STL Actors’ Studio Associate -Tony Award-nominated Playwright /Screenwriter / Director - “Reasons to be Pretty,” “Death at a Funeral,” “Hell on Wheels,” “Billions,” “Van Helsing,” "LaBute New Theater Festival"
William Roth, Founder, Artistic Director, St. Louis Actors’ Studio, Gaslight Theater, LaBute New Theater Festival
