In the 30 years since we founded Wheelock Family Theatre, we have received much critical praise and many prestigious awards- but the acclaim that means the most to us is the comments that we hear, every day, from the young people who are on our stage, in our classes, and in our audiences.
"While it requires a huge commitment after school, it has taught me the importance of planning ahead, sticking to a schedule and meeting deadlines. It has taught me skills that actually improve my school performance." -Katherine D.
"Everyone takes something personal and lasting from their participation in the theatre. I hope that many other kids will share my good fortune and have the opportunity to be part of the Wheelock family." -Jacob B.
"Wheelock has been like a second home ... I am proud to say that I am a member of the Wheelock community, a place where nobody is discriminated against or alienated for any reason." -Armando C.
We are proud of the quality of our productions, the excellence of our classes and workshops, and our unparalleled commitment to ensuring access to all. But ticket and tuition income cover only about two-thirds of our budget. The balance comes from patrons, like you, who understand the value of what we do, the impact theatre can have on the lives of children and families, and the many ways we build community.
We're hoping you will support Wheelock Family Theatre in our 30th anniversary season with a donation to our Annual Fund. Your gift will help ensure that we can continue our tradition of excellence and access, serving families from throughout the Boston area with professional, affordable theatre that reaches all generations.
Click here to donate online, or you can mail a check to Wheelock Family Theatre, The 200 Riverway, Boston, MA 02215.
You'll be making an important investment in the future of our young people and our community.
With best wishes for a joyous holiday season,
Susan Kosoff and Jane Staab, Founders
