Royal City Musical Theatre is excited to announce that it is launching an Actors Honorarium Program for 2018.
As many of our supporters are already aware, every April up to five professional performers join our cast. Our paid professionals are complemented with over twenty-five volunteer actors and actresses, many of whom later move on to their own paid roles, the ultimate goal of our organization.
The purpose of our new honorarium program is to further support professional careers in musical theatre by providing a financial incentive for 3-5 additional cast members, identified by our artistic team each season.
Our cast devotes countless hours to weekly rehearsals between January and April, spending many long days and evenings at the Massey Theatre, including money spent on transportation and meals. Our Actors Honorarium Program will provide some compensation for several performers each season who intend to continue with careers on stage.
We can’t do this without the support of our many donors, members and devoted audience attendees! In order to launch this program, we have set a goal of raising $2500 by September 30. A mail and phone campaign to Royal City Musical Theatre’s many loyal supporters is launching this week!
All individuals who donate $25 or more will receive a tax receipt. They will also be recognized in the 2018 Cabaret Print Program as Founding Members of the Actors Honorarium Program. We look forward to your support!
