Support Merely Players
As is true in theatres across the nation, ticket prices account for only about 50% of our production costs. The rest of our expenses must be met through private donations and grants. The money we raise directly affects the quality of our productions. Donations are used to rent spaces, pay royalties, hire actors and other personnel, pay for technical elements such as scenery, costumes, and lighting, and to publicize our shows.
Theatre is expensive. Even bare-bones productions cost thousands of dollars. But we believe that it is worth it, and we hope that you do too. The art that is created in theatre is unique and moving in a way that mass media cannot replicate.
A major reason Durango is ranked as one of the top small towns to live in is because of the rich and varied culture within our beautiful surroundings. We believe that our theatre company contributes to that fertile environment. Art enriches the community’s soul.
We reaffirm our promise that every dime we receive will go toward making quality theatre in Durango. Even small amounts add up and ensure that we can continue creating theatre in Durango.
