Hold up the mirror this #GivingTuesday.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated in the U.S. on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday is a charitable response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday that launches the season of generosity worldwide.
This #GivingTuesday New City Players is raising $12,000 to fuel our mission of staging transformative theatre and our vision to see the people in our city flourish through the power of theatre, story, and community. And great news…the first $2,000 raised are being matched dollar-for-dollar by our sponsors!
Our brains are wired for stories. How can we have thoughtful and empathetic citizens without a steady diet of great art? Namely, great theatre, that places a person right in front of us and tells their story.
It’s not only about entertainment or escape…it’s about transformation.
