In the last 12 months, Synetic Theater has strengthened our core team considerably to match the word-class art and education programs you have come to expect from us. We now employ 19 full- and part-time staff members, not to mention the scores of artists, technicians, and teaching artists who join our team throughout the season.
Given Synetic Theater and our community’s commitment to ending the COVID-19 pandemic as quickly as possible, we have postponed most public programming for at least the next 8 weeks. This was a difficult, but necessary decision to prioritize the health of our artists and patrons in this difficult time.
While our in-person public programming is on hold, our staff is working diligently from home to keep our behind-the-scenes operations running so that we can reopen as strong as we closed, and we are quickly exploring virtual ways to deliver our signature programs to you, from Synetic Fitness to archival videos of our past award-winning productions to interactive educational programs. We are committed to keeping our world-class team intact and need your help today to ensure this happens.
We are excited to announce today our plan to combat our lost revenue and emerge stronger than ever with:
Synetic Strong is our fundraising campaign to support the theater, and by extension the livelihood of our incredible staff, artists, and technicians, during this crisis.
A coalition comprised of our board and several other generous donors have committed to matching donations to Synetic Strong dollar for dollar up to $150,000, and we will be adding to that group over the next week.
We can’t wait to reopen our doors with our next production as soon as this crisis is over. After all, art makes life worth living. We know that everyone has been affected socially and financially, but with your support of Synetic Strong, we will keep the flame alive through this unprecedented world event!
