Contributors are a vital part of Red Bird Theatre.

In the spring of 2015, founding Managing Director, Michelle Hernick, and I shook on it and submitted our first grant application.  I’d been thinking about a company for a long time, so I knew who I wanted to work with and what kind of work I wanted to do – but I didn’t have a name.  In the draft of the grant application I’d written an “X” in every place the company name should have been.  The day before it was due I landed on Red Bird Theatre.

I love cardinals – they stand out, they’re hearty, they have a beautiful song – and they can fly.  Those were qualities I wanted a theatre company to emulate.

To stand out for the quality of our work.

To be hearty enough to weather tough times.

To make work that sings – that reaches out, connects, moves and touches audiences.

YOU make us fly.

The support of folks like you has allowed us to produce two cardinal-worthy productions.   This season we are excited to bring Tony Kushner’s timely A Bright Room Called Day to the stage.

Please consider making a contribution to help us raise the remaining $3,500 of our $23,000 budget. 

Whether you’ve been with us from the get-go, or our relationship is just beginning, thank you!
