HELP US RAISE THE CURTAIN!
Dear Friends and Patrons of The Vero Beach Theatre Guild,
We hope this communication finds you all safe and well. First and foremost, we want you to know how much we miss you. Your love and support for our community theatre over the last 62 years is the inspiration behind everything we do in our efforts to bring people together to enjoy high quality entertainment.
While our curtain is closed for now, we know we’ll open it once again and share in the magic of theatre together, but we need your support to do that. Our ticket sales only cover about 60 percent of our actual operating costs which remain at approximately 14 to 15 thousand dollars a month even as our current production is shuttered. The rest comes from generous donors, memberships, sponsorships and a dedicated army of volunteers. So here are some ways you can help us reopen and stay open!
PURCHASE NEW OR RENEW SEASON SUBSCRIPTIONS THIS OCTOBER
It is our intention to raise the grand drape again on our stunning production of Jesus Christ Superstar January 8, 2021, followed by a great lineup of four more productions. Scheduled dates can be found at the end of this email. Playing it safe, and waiting this long to reopen will surely be a struggle to meet our considerable operating costs. Your NEW OR RENEWED Season Subscription will help us cover the gap until we can come together again and share in the magic of live theatre! For all subscribers, we have five, four and three show packages available at reasonable prices. Our volunteer box office staff will resume with regular business hours beginning October 4, 2020. In the meantime, any questions you may have about subscriptions or previously purchased tickets will be answered quickest by emailing us using the CONTACT US button below. Thank you.
Your gift, in any amount will help ensure a successful reopening of the theatre and our current production, Jesus Christ Superstar.The Guild invests considerable resources to produce big musicals like this one and having to shutter the production in the first week has resulted in significant losses. Please consider a donation today. It's fast, easy and completely secure.

"A SEASON WITH ARTHUR MILLER"
Hundreds-of-thousands of volunteer man-hours have helped make us one of the oldest and most respected community theaters on the Treasure Coast, as well as in Florida. We are always eager to welcome new faces into the Theatre Guild family, so if you are a TEAM-PLAYER, who has always wanted to help make a little theatre magic, this might be the perfect place for you!
When we re-open we are going to need plenty of help! You can help in the box office, concessions, house management, ushering, lighting & tech, props, costumes, advertising sales, and so much more.
Volunteering at The Guild is both fun and educational and we can find a place and role for you regardless of your experience level.
