the project

We are excited about our upcoming production entitled "The Guardians", which will be performed at The New Hazlett Theater on December 18, 2018! This holiday production features acting, dance, mime, and original music. "The Guardians" provides an enriching experience for young people and adults who are interesting in acting, dance and singing. It provides an opportunity for both amateur and seasoned actors/actresses to learn from Pittsburgh's own directress and actress, Rita Gregory.

The North Side community, and many from surrounding communities, looks forward to this event every year! Our annual attendance ranges between 300 and 400 people. Your gift will help us provide quality, low-cost entertainment, while also providing training for both professional and amateur actors/actresses and aspiring actors/actresses. 

the steps

A portion of the monies we receive from donations, will be used to provide scholarships to youth groups and families so that they can attend "The Guardians." "The Guardians" provides an uplifting holiday message that is beneficial to the whole community. We will start contacting groups in early December to invite them to take advantage of the scholarships that you have made available through your donations.

why we're doing it

We are exposing inner-city families to a low-cost holiday production. Many low to moderate income families cannot afford to attend major holiday productions because of cost. This is an opportunity for them to see or be involved in a performance that they normally could not afford. The play, "The Guardians" gives a positive message of hope.

Thank you to all of you who have helped us reach our goal! We have reached our goal on ioby.org, but additional funds are still needed to help us with props and technical support. So, we are still accepting donations. Any level of contribution would be appreciated. Today is the last day of our fundraising campaign, so please give today.

Thank you!

We've almost reached our goal! Please help us reach it.

There is only one day left to donate to The Guardians through ioby.org. Can you help us? We are only $70 short of our goal. Your support will help us produce an inspiring holiday event. Thank you for whatever level of support you can provide.

We're Getting Closer to Our Goal!

So far, we have raised $1,150 of our goal of $1,580! We just need $430 more in donations to finish our campaign. Can you help us by making a donation today? Rehearsals for "The Guardians" have been fantastic, and we are looking forward to a great production on December 18th at The New Hazlett Theater! You're gift will help make this a memorable, uplifting experience for children, teens and adults. Please make your donation by November 20th. We will be ever so grateful. - The Brown Chapel Heir Force
