Tacoma's Only Professional Repertory Theatre Launches IndieGoGo Campaign to Support Inaugural Season

Tacoma, WA:  Monday, May 11, 2015 marks the launch of the Tacoma Actors Repertory Theatre's (TART) fundraising drive. TART will bring the first professional repertory theater to Tacoma in 10 years, boasting a unique 99-seat venue and an engaging variety of performances, from classical to kitsch. Running for 45 days with the goal of $50,000 via IndieGoGo, the funds raised will lease and renovate a venue, purchase equipment and hire talent and staff. A carefully chosen Board of Directors lead the project with in-depth experience in both the artistic and business details of a successful theatre company.

For two years TART Artistic Director Jen Tidwell has worked to develop her vision into a reality. "We are very excited to be Tacoma's new professional regional theater company, bringing entertainment, culture and arts education to Tacoma and the South Sound." In addition to professional actors, TART will provide employment for area artists, set designers and builders, sound and lighting technicians and other related professionals. TART will also offer classes and experiences for local aspiring actors of all levels.

In addition to supporting the arts and culture of Tacoma, donors will enjoy a wide variety of perks including free tickets, discounts on class offerings, reception invitations, name plaques and other special recognition. All members of the public who wish to be part of supporting the arts in Tacoma can visit the theatre's webpage at www.tacomarep.org and visit http://igg.me/at/tacomarep for the Tacoma Actors Repertory Theatre IndieGoGo campaign page.
