WANNA PLAY A GAME???
How about the Algonquin Arts Musical Chair Challenge?!!!
What’s the challenge, you ask??? Well, think of it as MUSICAL CHAIRS in reverse! After all…these are MUSICAL THEATRE chairs….so the music NEVER stops! Instead of taking seats away, we have to keep ADDING seats to KEEP THE MUSIC PLAYING!
The best part is, you don’t actually have to get up and run around in a circle (although you CAN if you want to, but please post a picture afterwards!)…all you have to do is click a button and DONATE! Donations support ongoing improvements to our beautiful venue and our year-round artistic programming.
Even BETTER than that, Algonquin Arts Theatre is a 501(c)3 non-profit and your contribution to this campaign is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law!
EVERYONE GETS A PRIZE! (but you’ll have to read all the way to the bottom to find out what THAT is!)
Algonquin Arts Theatre is a nonprofit arts center dedicated to providing the highest-quality performances and programs in theatre, music, film and dance. Showcasing both local emerging artists and established Broadway stars, Algonquin Arts Theatre delights more than 35,000 patrons each year through Broadway Series Programming and the Algonquin Youth Ensemble.
The 77-year-old theatre began its life as a movie theatre in 1938 before a major renovation in 1992 transformed the neglected structure into a live performance venue. Located in beautiful Manasquan, New Jersey, the theatre is a centerpiece of the community, a center of learning for apprentice and journeymen performers, a showplace for stars and a haven of artistic excellence for our audience!
Now, back to the DONATING part:
We know what WE get out of it, but what do YOU get? What's the prize???
No matter what you donate, your name will be included on our OceanFirst Charity Challenge Lobby Display. (translation: Big, cool, framed poster in the theatre lobby!)
Not enough for you????
You're going to have to raise the stakes, then. Here's the deal:
Make an individual donation of $150.00 and have a personalized plaque placed on one of our MOVABLE CHAIRS, which help us to accomodate the seating needs of disabled patrons and their companions. (just make sure you use your real name when you donate or your screen name will be immortalized!)
Make an individual donation of $500.00 or more and have a personalized plaque placed on one of our permanantly fixed house seats AND your name (or your cat's name...or dog's) included in our Playbill for 1 year. (That's around 35,000 people seeing what a wonderful person you are!)
OR, if you're one of those Type A, Uber-competitive types, you can start a FUNDRAISING TEAM and make other people donate FOR you! Just click on the "FUNDRAISE FOR THIS CAUSE" button on the top right of this screen. (all the same prizes still apply, they'd just be awarded to the team instead of one individual. 35,000 people will still know how cool you are.)
Join the Algonquin Arts Musical Chair Challenge! and you’ll be a part of the history and vibrant future of the Algonquin Arts Theatre!
