Support the Arts
Dear Business Owner,
Thank you for your interest in supporting New Tampa Players. New Tampa Players is a 501c3 community theatre, currently performing at the University Area CDC. As a local community theatre committed to quality and diversity, we are reaching out to the Tampa Bay community in the next season to introduce more people to quality theatre and the local arts. We need your support during our 2017-2018 season to make this happen.
This summer, New Tampa Players embarked on a journey to make our season more diverse, on-stage, backstage, and in the audience. Our partners at the University Area CDC and local residents of the University Area shared with us the importance of giving children of all races and socioeconomic levels the opportunity to see someone just like them on stage and to include the interests of all people in our season. Local community theatre in the Tampa Bay area is not very diverse. With each community theatre trying to retain audiences, it is very risky to step outside of the model that works. With this feedback, and knowing the risk, our board decided that diversity in community theatre was essential for Tampa and decided to produce The Wiz. We are happy to report that The Wiz was an artistic and community success. Our diverse cast of 50 were able to introduce hundreds of people to theatre.
With this success, New Tampa Players is planning to continue to include underserved groups in the Tampa Bay community. Also, during the Wiz, we partnered with State of the Art Interpreting, and one performance of the Wiz was sign language interpreted for our deaf community. State of the Art Interpreting has reached out to New Tampa Players on behalf of the deaf community to organize a show for deaf actors, and we are excited about this opportunity.
For New Tampa Players to continue on this path to include all of Tampa Bay, we need your support during the 2017-2018 season. Our season includes: Quilt: A Musical Celebration, Addams Family: A New Musical, Legally Blonde, and Annie.
