Whether you want to be a part of the excitement at NRTG or just want to show your support, there are plenty of ways you can help out. Each is important to us in its own way.
When you join NRTG, you become a part of our extended team of supporters. With your annual membership fee, you will receive a subscription to our newsletter, The Footlights, and invitations to special events, as well as announcements of upcoming auditions.
To print the NRTG membership form that you can fill out and send to us (with your check), go to our Membership page.
We can always use more help. Whether you’ve had years of professional theatre experience or you’ve never stepped foot inside a theatre, there’s plenty you can do to help out.
We are regularly in need of help backstage on stage crew (no experience necessary; we’ll provide it). If you sew, paint, do woodworking or graphic design, we’ve got plenty of gratifying work for you. Even if your only asset is your enthusiasm, there are plenty of posters to be distributed, people to call, and ads to be sold.
We are always looking for volunteers willing to serve performances as Ushers and House Managers. In serving our patrons with a small time commitment to NRTG, you will be welcome to view the performance you are serving FREE of charge! This is a great opportunity for friends/couples to serve together and see a great performance – all in one memorable evening.
Call us at (716) 260-2319 and tell us you want to help. Or visit our Contact Us page, and send us a message. We’ll take it from there.
Monetary Donations. We don’t like to sound crass, but if you feel the best way you can help out would be simply to donate some money, we’re fine with that. Running a theatre company is very expensive, especially of late, with virtually all government assistance a thing of the past.
Ticket sales make up only a part of our budget. For much of the rest, we depend upon the generosity of strangers, and of our friends like you. Niagara Regional Theatre Guild is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, so donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Becoming a Patron. With your generous donation of $50 or more you will be recognized by having your name added out our list of patrons presented in the Program Book distributed at all our performances.. Find out more about becoming a Patron.
Material Donations. Do you have an old clawfoot table that you can’t throw out but will never use? Unused fabric with a pattern so hideous you wonder why you ever bought it? An old manual typewriter that hasn’t worked since high school? From time to time, we need specific props, furniture, or building materials that we can’t find, or that aren’t in our budget.
We post a Wish List on this website in an effort to locate specific items we need. Please check it out and help us if you can.
Throughout August and September of each year, we compile our ad book, which becomes part of the program distributed at each of our main shows through our season. Ad rates are always reasonable and our programs are distributed to thousands every season. Please visit our Advertising page for more information.
NRTG thanks the continuing largesse of local companies for making our productions possible. Those community-minded companies who demonstrate particular generosity, we designate as our Corporate Sponsors. Sponsors receive acknowledgement on our posters, programs, advertising, and all printed materials. To find out more, visit our Corporate Sponsorship page.
The easiest way to support NRTG is simply to come to our shows. Consider purchasing Season Tickets to get big discounts over single-ticket prices for all four of our mainstage productions. And don’t forget, we offer special Group Rates if you have an organization or other group who would like to make an outing of an evening at the theater.
