Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Like Broadway and many theatres coast to coast, Third Wall Productions has gone dark during the COVID-19 pandemic. We rely heavily on ticket sales and donations to meet our operating cost, continue our education in the arts to those students whose school programs have been cut, and to provide scholarships to young people for our Summer Stock. Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To meet our monthly obligations, insurance, rent, storage, utilities, etc. while the theatre is dark due to Covid-19.

We have increased our request for funding as well as organizing an online Christmas podcast to help increase donations.

Web site and social media presence has increased we have seen a slight boost in donations.
Christmas podcast is in rehearsal and progressing well.

Despite being shutdown since March we have meet our financial obligations. This of course has been accomplished without income from camp, shows, or workshops. We will continue to evaluate our progress and institute other programs to ensure we continue to serve the community.
