Donating to the Department of Theatre

The University Theatre Needs Your Support!

The Department of Theatre is looking for new ways to create much needed scholarships, ways to offset production costs, complete minor capital improvements to Stone Theatre, and create and offer a one-of-a-kind high school workshop program that will travel to schools both in and out of state.


There is no minimum or maximum amount set for a donation. It is important that you understand, no matter how large or small your donation may be, it will be more than we currently have available to address these very real needs.

 

Your donations will go directly to support the following

Scholarships
Currently the Department of Theatre has no funding to support the recruitment efforts for the undergraduate students. In these very difficult economic times, financial considerations often play a large part as students and their families decide where to continue their academic careers. A small scholarship stipend can go a long way to assisting talented and deserving students as they continue to learn and grow at Louisiana Tech University. Your gift will help students follow their hopes and hearts; achieve their dreams and desires!

 

Production Costs
The cost of producing a show is growing much faster than our budgets. Whether it’s lumber, steel, screws, fabric, bangles, or beads, every production requires expenditures. Historically, one of the hallmarks of the Louisiana Tech University Department of Theatre has been the high quality of our production values. Unfortunately, in recent years, we have had to discard some production ideas, simply because we could not afford to produce the shows and maintain those high production standards. Your gift will help the Department of Theatre to continue to dazzle and delight audiences!

 

Capital Campaign
Refurbishing the Stone Theatre, i.e. theatre seats, aisle carpeting, lobby lighting, and the on-going improvements to our class, rehearsal and performance spaces is of vital importance as we strive to remain top theatre department in the Northern Louisiana I-20 corridor. In addition to the spaces, ever-changing technology demands that updating tools and equipment is a constant consideration as well. Your gift will help the Department of Theatre maintain the first-class finishing for which we are known!


Recruitment
In any given year, there are three to six major recruiting events in which we participate. Some, like the nationally-known Southeastern Theatre Conference, are held in various locations each year and allow us to make contact with literally hundreds of potential undergraduate and graduate students. Some, like the Louisiana Thespian Festival and individual high school workshop days, are closer to home and put us in touch with some of the top talent coming out of high school in the state of Louisiana. All of them require expenditures for travel, lodging, promotional materials, and mailings. Your gift will help the Department of Theatre continue to travel and recruit to attract the best and brightest students to become the next generation of theatre artists!
