To our amazing and dedicated families and supporters,

The public outcry of support for BackStory Theatre over the past several weeks has been encouraging and heart-warming. Our mission has always been to provide a much-needed service in the Broomfield community and share our passion for theatre arts. Your response to our recent financial distress has shown that performing arts education and presentation are also of critical importance to you.

With that in mind, we are excited to announce our grateful receipt of guidance and support from the Broomfield Community Foundation. With their assistance, we will begin restructuring our organization and defining a five-year financial plan which will allow us to thrive in the coming years.

Many of you have asked, "How can I help BackStory?"

Over the next two months, we will be making several changes to our operations and increasing our fundraising efforts. Donations in any amount are very much needed and appreciated! Your gifts may be sent by check to PO Box 826, Broomfield, CO 80038 or made by credit card on the CO Gives website. All donations are tax deductible and may be provided a tax donation letter.

The Show Must Go On... Join us June 20th at the Broomfield Auditorium at 3pm or 7pm for a special variety show fundraising event sponsored by the City and County of Broomfield and the Cultural Affairs Division! Tickets are a minimum of $15 and may be purchased before the event at https://www.brownpapertickets.com (link to come) or at the door starting one hour prior to showtime. Performances by BackStory students, families, and local Broomfield community members will be featured!

We are hopeful that these efforts will prove sufficient to continue with our mission of providing high quality opportunities for performing arts in and around the Broomfield area. Thank you for your continued support!

Gratefully,
Anna Marie Wilcox
Founder and Executive Artistic Director
