Support Matters


Nothing can stand for long without SUPPORT

The Cabaret Theatre wants to stand strong, and it can....
...with YOUR support.



Here are some FUNDRAISING IDEAS...big and small.  If you would like to grab onto one of these ideas and run with it as Committee Chair, please call or email:  724-527-7775 or at jcabaret@comcast.net 

Would YOU like to be in charge of designing and marketing a Cabaret Theatre Bumper Sticker?

Or would YOU prefer to design an "I Believe It Will Come To Pass"
SUBSCRIPTION DRIVE?

And if you want to make an investment in our future, we are introcucing...THE "I-Believe-It-Will-Come-To-Pass" pass.

The "I-Believe-It-Will-Come-To-Pass" Pass for ONE admission


For the BELIEVER.......
This simple little piece of paper will
guarantee ONE FREE ADMISSION to any Cabaret Theatre show at any time in the future.  For the ultra low price of $10.00 now, this ticket is guaranteed to admit one even if our ticket prices soar to $1000.00 or even higher.  Buy NOW and enjoy 
​LATER.  Show your faith that the theatre will open and flourish!

I Believe It Will Come to Pass

$10.00

Good for Any Production at The Cabaret Theatre

...and for the ULTIMATE believer... those who really, really, really really, really, really, really, really, believe .........a 3-Admission Pass

Would YOU like to fine-tune this idea and get it up and running?

$25.00

Attentione, Fashionistas!
Maybe YOU want to organize a
T-SHIRT SALE?
Prance through town and country in
sartorial splendor...and...spread the word about The Cabaret Theatre at the same time

 Available in S, M, L, and XL for the special "benefit" price of.



​$35.00

Be a Part of It

Calling all nostalgia buffs!  Look what we found in the 
basement of the old Paramount/Manos Theatre.   Do YOU want to organize and manage a "BRICK SALE?"

From the way they were stacked and from what we know of the old configuration of the theatre, we believe they are from the original box office that stood near the center of the building just off the sidewalk.  There are ONLY 100 of them in good condition and we will 
mark them 1 of 100, 2 of 100, etc. and then seal coat them and add a beautiful ribbon.  They'll make an extraordinarily interesting doorstop and/or conversation piece.  Go on.  Be a brick about it and get one before they are all sold.  This lovely item can be yours for a mere 

​$100.00 per Brick

Time for a little break in your shopping experience.  Let's do a little Math.
Let's say we sell the following:

100 Bumper Stickers (2.50 profit).....                                           $   250.00
100 Admit One Tickets..........................                                              1,000.00
100 Admit Three Tickets.......................                                              2,500.00
100 T-Shirts................................................                                               3,500.00
100 Souvenir Bricks................................                                             10,000.00

TOTAL.............................................................................................      $17,250.00

Not a bad haul.  A good beginning...but let's see there must be something else we can sell besides our integrity which we will need to keep if we are going to remain true to doing the kind of theatre work we are commited to.  So...let's see.  Do YOU have any ideas?  Here's one.


HOW ABOUT A TABLE?

The very talented David Kindl (owner and operator of Kindlkraft) is fashioning a beautiful wooden centerpiece for the fourteen (14) tables on the main floor of the theatre.  It will hold napkins, stir sticks, etc. and it will be emblazoned with the theatre masks.  The design is a HUGE secret, but if you know David's work, you know it will be stunning.  On it will be a place for the name of the table sponsor.  

This "copied" pic from
internet files cannot be compared to David's fine work.  You will be proud to have anyone who sits at YOUR table see YOUR name on this piece of fine craftsmanship.

$250.00

Only fourteen (14) available

Or...how about...

HELP WANTED
It's simply impossible for J.C. and B.J. to do any more than they are already doing.  Would YOU like to head one of the fundraisers above?  Or come up with one of your own?  All ideas are welcome.
Call us:  724-527-7775 or jcabaret@comcast.net

We know a lot of people who think we're crazy for investing everything we have in this project...and sometimes what they say gets to us and we begin to doubt.  But...when those times happen, what do we do?  We turn to the Arts, and in particular to theatre.  That's where we find the strength to go on.   Here are a few examples...and yes, they are (all except one) from movies...and that's because of the rules about filming live productions.  If you have some time and want to understand what keeps us going, take a few minutes and be reminded of our potential as human beings.  
                                                                                                                                          JC & BJ

Don't tell me not to live
Just sit and putter
Life's candy and the sun's
A ball of butter
Don't bring around a cloud
To rain on my parade

​We intend to do it no matter who says what.

​We intend to use what time we have.


Tomorrow we'll discover
What our God in Heaven has in store.
One more dawn!
One more day!
One day more!


​​

Climb every mountain
Ford every stream
Follow every rainbow
'Till you find your dream

​We intend to try while we can.

We intend to let it happen.

Anything can happen; it's a marvel!
You can be a butterfly or just stay larval.
Stretch your mind beyond fantastic.
Dreams are made of strong elastic.
Take some sound advice and don't forget it:
Anything can happen, if you let it.

Audio only.  Getting usable clips of Mary Poppins is very difficult.  Sorry.  But... the words!  The words are worth listening to.

...and these strong, hopeful messages are not only in musicals; they also permeate writing non-musical scripts for the stage and screen....

 You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate - the unloved and the unnatural! 

We intend to honor our humanity.

We intend to go on and on and on until we can't go any further.

 You think I'm licked. You all think I'm licked. Well I'm not licked. And I'm gonna stay right here and fight for this lost cause. 

We intend to use this moment in time as best we can.

Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary.

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.

When we band together,
impossibilities vanish.

That's it! That's our pitch.   To the extent that you can, stand with us as we move toward the goal.    Thank you.
                                                                                                                              JC & BJ
