Monologue Competition Fundraiser

The Village Playhouse held a monologue competition as a fundraiser to help cover expenses while we are dark due to COVID-19. The event was held the weekend of July 10, 2020.

10 members of the Village Playhouse submitted entries of themselves performing monologues. Each had a fundraising goal, and patrons could donate toward their favorite performance.

Congrats to everyone who hit their fundraising goals! The will each receive a pair of tickets to the next show the Village Playhouse produces!

And a big thank you! to Clayton Mortl, our largest donor to this event. He’ll also receive a flex ticket.

Plus an additional Thank You to Marjorie Pagel. She has been wonderful in helping raise awareness of the Village Playhouse. In addition to participating in this fundraiser, she also did a Facebook Birthday Fundraiser for us, raising over $300!

Huge thank you to all who have donated! All the little donations of $5 – $15 dollars really added up, helping us to achieve our goal. With this fundraiser we are able to cover our rent and general expenses for the next two months while we figure out a plan for the future.

While we have raised to keep the lights on for a couple of months, we are still in need of help – especially as we are unsure when we will be able to open for full productions again. We will continue to look for ways to bring you quality entertainment while we figure out what the future holds and appreciate your help and support during this uncertain time.
