Excellent theatre. Professional fundraising.
Excellent Theatre Powerful dramas.
The most powerful dramas in English literature. Sure, the old comedies and musicals and other chestnuts are wonderful. But wouldn't like to sink your heart into a meaningful, moving drama that clutches your heart and provokes your thoughts? That is Charity Readers Theatre.
Professional Fundraising Transparent and Effective
All of your donation goes to charity. Not 10% like some so called "charities." Not just 50%; which is better. But still not good enough. Not 100% of the net. (Because who knows how much the expenses are.) But at a CRT fundraising show, the charity gets 100% of your donation. 100%.
A Show In A Week One Performance Only
CRT is all about acting, acting, acting. There are almost no costumes, no props, no sets, no lighting design, no sound design, no subtitles. It’s all acting. And as it is readers theatre, actors will carry scripts to refer to. CRT is an artistic process where actors rehearse for only one week. And at the end of that week, we do one performance only.
CRT Seal of Approval Effective and Transparent Charity Beneficiaries
CRT beneficiary charities are professionally researched and vetted. They live up to the highest standards of transparency and effectiveness. They make our community a better place to live. In addition to your ticket purchase donation, additional donations are welcome.
