I am taking this opportunity to ask for your help. As our 2016 & 2017 achievements have shown, Refuge Theatre Project is a unique and valuable contributor to the Chicago theatre community capable of reaching diverse and expansive audiences. We are launching an ambitious 2018/2019 season that will continue to aid in establishing Chicago as a leading destination for musical theatre, but to achieve this, we need your support. Refuge Theatre Project has filing for 501(c)(3) status, and is currently able to accept tax-deductible donations through our fiscal sponsor, Fractured Atlas. Your donation is vital to the success of our 2018/2019 season. Please consider giving today.

With my warmest thanks,

Ross Egan, Executive Director
