- Developing, promoting and showcasing local talent;
- Cultivating and growing the development of the professional theatre industry in Southern New Brunswick;
- Ensuring our creative projects make a positive impact on our community
YOU HAVE A VITAL ROLE TO PLAY
The Saint John Theatre Company relies on the generous support of individuals and organizations to keep providing world-class theatre productions that inspire our community and foster the next generation of artists.
To follow are a variety of ways you can show your support and play a vital role in strengthening the arts in our community.
STAGING THE FUTURE ENDOWMENT FUND
Recent global events have shown the Saint John Theatre Company the importance of having long-term investments that protect our operations and programs during unpredictable times. The SJTC’s Staging the Future Endowment Fund, launched with a generous bequest from the late Helene Ovesen, is a key component of our sustainability plan.
Held in trust by The Community Foundation, each year the Endowment provides a reliable income stream that enables the Saint John Theatre Company to continue to expand our programming and entertain, enlighten and inspire our audiences.
“The SJTC just makes Saint John a better place to live! It enriches the cultural experience in the city. The diverse shows. The beautiful venue. The variety of outreach programs. It makes me very proud to live here.” Brian Dobbelsteyn
