For the past 14 years, Dare to Dream Theatre has been proud to present high quality family programming both onstage and off highlighting life skills through stage skills and encouraging youth and their families to explore the world around them through theatre.
Over the years we grew from a small theatre academy run by founder Rachel Thuermer (Baas) in 2001 offering classes in various locations in Wisconsin and Minnesota, to a grounded 501c3 organization with roots in Manitowoc County, and participants from Sheboygan, Brown, Calumet, and other surrounding counties.
Serving over 300 families directly through academy classes and 4-5 productions each year, Dare to Dream Theatre has a strong core of volunteer support. Each production welcomes new as well as returning families and has created a place that many call a second home. Each performance welcomes audiences of up to 300 students, youth, and their families each night, totally an average of over 3000 audience members a year.
We have seen growth in leaps and bounds among audience and participants, but as any organization grows, so must it's family of donors. This is where you come in. Will you help us take the next step in the adventure? Will you support our growth joining our family of Donors? Will you help us explore our NEW HORIZONS in 2016?
We have BIG DREAMS planned for 2016...from partnerships in Sheboygan County, expanding programming, increasing experience, and so much more! stay tuned to learn more as we reveal our amazing plans.
Dare to Dream Theatre is a non-profit 501c3 organization that operates on revenue from ticket sales, donations, and fundraising events.
Ticket Revenue covers only a portion of the actual cost of producing our plays. In fact, Dare to Dream subsidizes more than $75,000 each year, with professionals and volunteers donating their time to keep participation fees and tickets affordable for school groups and families.
We rely on additional support from people like you to help Dare to Dream achieve our mission to make a difference through theatre by teaching life skills through theater skills. Gifts of any size are appreciated.
Your tax-deductible contribution will be used to support programs in both the Academy and the Productions.
