Queens Theatre Fundraiser

-A +A

Dear Theatregoers,

My name is Rob Urbinati, and I am a freelance director and playwright. I have also been on the staff of Queens Theatre since 1998 as Director of New Play Development.

For the past 17 years, Queens Theatre has provided opportunities for many writers to see their new work in Full Productions including Rajiv Joseph ("Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo"), Qui Nguyen ("Trial By Water"), Heather Raffo ("Nine Parts of Desire") and myself ("The Queen Bees"). Queens Theatre has produced short-play festivals about the borough ("Queen Scenes"), and more specifically, the two New York World's Fairs that were held in Corona Meadows Flushing Park ("The World's Fair Plays"). It has also given over one hundred writers the opportunity to present new works as part of a Reading Series, and has given Queens audiences a chance to hear these distinct, provocative voices, and participate in the developmental process.

I am reminding you of all these great things because this month, Queens Theatre has been given a tremendous opportunity - a matching grant by Con Edison. They are offering a dollar-for-dollar match for all donations made to Queens Theatre up to $50,000. It means that any amount you give to Queens Theatre will be doubled.

The June 30 deadline for the matching grant is fast approaching. Queens Theatre needs your help now more than ever. Any contribution you can make, large or small, will allow Queens Theatre to keep providing the borough with world-class performances. Any contribution you can make will also keep the voices of all the playwrights Queens Theatre supports alive.
