WHY YOUR DONATION MATTERS

WE CAN BECOME A NONPROFIT!

RLT is currently in the process of obtaining 501(c)3 nonprofit status. This will open up a world of opportunities and resources that will help us focus on our mission and better serve the diverse voices within the Pioneer Valley community. Your donation will help us pay necessary and expensive legal fees so that we can be a fully operating nonprofit by the end of 2017!

WE CAN GO TO NEW YORK!

We are currently raising money to bring our acclaimed production "THE LIFE AND DEATH OF QUEEN MARGARET" to New York! The show will run August 10-20 at Theater for the New City, one of New York's leading off-off-Broadway theaters and an integral part of the historic East Village theater community. TNC is known for staging radical political plays and award-winning new work, and we are very proud and honored to have the opportunity to perform this particular play in this space. We hope that this opportunity will expand RLT's audience and help us to bring vital stories to more audiences in the future!

We will be in NYC for two weeks, which means $62 per person for metro cards and a minimum of $300 per person for per diems, not to mention transport to and from NYC. For some perspective, here is where your donations will go:
