DESPITE THE STORMS, THE SHOW MUST GO ON @ OLNEY THEATRE CENTER: CAN YOU HELP?

During the recent storms, many Olney Theatre Center families sustained damage to their homes or were without power for days .

Olney Theatre Center also sustained minor damages to their beautiful 14-acre campus. If you passed by the theatre last week, you probably noticed the large historic tree that uprooted, barely missing the Crawford House, which serves as Olney’s office and living space for our staff and performers.

Despite the loss of shrubbery, building siding, and roof shingles, our doors stayed open for you. While the inclement weather forced many theatres and businesses to close their doors, Olney’s diligent staff still managed to bring SLEUTH to valued audience members like you. Considering the record heat, the air-conditioning alone was worth the price of admission!

If possible, we ask those who are able to make a contribution to Olney Theatre Center and help us plant new trees and landscaping, as well as repair roofing and shingling, to refresh our wonderful campus—you can even name your own tree or garden!

Make your contribution on-line by clicking here. Please call David Frankenberger, Jr., Director of Development, at 301.924.4485 (x128) to make your contribution by phone or to hear more details on naming opportunities.

Thank you again for all your support and we look forward to seeing you!

Sincerely,
Martin Platt, Artistic Director
Amy Marshall, Managing Director
