Based in Berkeley, STAGE DOOR CONSERVATORY offers 4 popular summer camp programs in musical theater to children entering the 2nd through just graduating 12th grade. Acclaimed artistically, our day camps provide an enriched, supportive and often profoundly memorable experience for children interested in developing and expressing themselves as young actors and theater artists.
HOW ABOUT TEN LOUSY BUCKS?
In the words of Annie, In the words of Annie, "It's a hard knock life for us!" And we haven't found our Daddy Warbucks, so we are asking you, "Will you give us 10 Lousy Bucks?"
You are our friends, our supporters, parents of our campers, our STAGE DOOR CONSERVATORY family,
so we will be frank with you. The economy stinks, every year there are more camp programs competing with ours to
offer a great summer experience to your kids, and the cost to produce a camp like ours rises every year.
As we roll into summer 2014 we are carrying some debt. Not enough to put us under, but enough to make us toss and turn at night.
So what are we going to do about it?
1) We are restructuring! We are making ourselves a leaner, meaner, performing arts machine!
2) We are reducing costs! Like all great organizations in a time of stress, we are finding the fat and cutting it out, and looking for ways to do more with less where the campers won't notice.
3) We are asking you for 10 Lousy Bucks! Our goal is to raise $1000. That's only 10 Lousy Bucks from 100 great friends!
I know, you're thinking: "What's in it for me?" Well, how about you get:
1) The satisfaction of knowing you are helping kids get a fantastic summer experience
2) A shout out on the website and in our summer performance programs
3) We will come to your home and wash your car (OK, not really.)
4) A sweet tax deduction: We are a 501(c)(3).
