Your Support Makes All The Difference

Dear Friends and Family of Northside,

This year we are celebrating our 40th Anniversary Season. It is an incredibly important milestone. A milestone that, for a while there, seemed dangerously out of reach. But we made it, we survived, but we could never have done it alone.

Theatre, by its very nature, is a community. Nothing happens alone. The actors, designers, crew, staff, volunteers; from the first day of rehearsal until closing night, we are a team, relying on both ourselves and each other to bring our productions to life. It’s what makes live theatre so special, so important, and such a vibrant, necessary part of all of our lives.

But none of this can happen without you. As you know, ticket sales account for less than half of our operational expenses. You - our donors - make up that difference. For example:

▪ $100 could pay for the programs for A Christmas Carol

▪ $500 could pay for the costumes for This is Our Youth

▪ $700 could pay for the Season Brochures for our entire season

▪ $1,000 could provide the scenic materials for Good People

▪ $1,500 could buy the theatre a new energy-efficient LED lighting instrument

And there is so much more to come! Our 40th season has yet to bring you This is Our Youth, a hilarious and agonizing story of three young adults coming-of-age in the Reagan Era; Good People, a poignant tale about facing the results of one’s life choices and discovering if you can overcome your past, and The Taming of the Shrew, the classic Shakespeare play that examines social-sexual dynamics, that is more resonant today than it was 400 years ago.


Help us reach our year-end fundraising goal of $10,000 by making a year-end, tax-deductible contribution to Northside Theatre Company. Help us keep our vibrant community thriving, and help raise the bar for bold, thought-provoking theatre in San Jose.

Thank you for everything you do. And remember, always, that we could not do this without you!
