For our 63rd Season, EDP featured three mainstage play productions at reduced audience capacity with full COVID protocols in place for the safety of our patrons and no increase in the cost of tickets or fees. In addition, EDP’s 11th Annual Festival of Shorts returned, offering eight new playwrights from across the United States the opportunity to see their works performed on stage in a festival of short plays. Our New Works Program produced four staged readings of works in progress by local playwrights at no cost to attendees and included guided talkbacks to allow for audience feedback and discussion. EDP continues to increase accessibility to its theatre space, including a hearing loop system to work with assistive hearing devices and scheduled American Sign Language interpreted performances with reduced price tickets for our deaf and hard-of-hearing patrons.

EDP’s outreach program, Take A Kid to the Theatre, serves youth and their families experiencing housing insecurity in Snohomish County by bringing workshops to them in shelter and transitional housing facilities and inviting them to attend our performances and education programs at no cost, including transportation, meals, and supplies. EDP served 60 children and adults in transitional housing this year through the opportunity to take part in our theatre arts education programs and productions.

During the summer months, EDP’s education program connected over 55 students with instructors and material that instills passion, teaches skills, and builds confidence to pursue opportunities inside and outside of the theatre. EDP also supported theatre education in King and Snohomish Counties by loaning stage props, furniture, and costuming to enhance school productions and awarding long-standing scholarships to three students pursuing theatre arts and theatre technology education at any college, university, or technical school in the United States. Almost 100 ticket passes were donated to schools, arts and culture, and other nonprofits in King and Snohomish Counties to support their fundraising efforts.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Sep 01 - Aug 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
