October 2021 –
Dear Ballet Theatre of Scranton Supporter,
The Nutcracker is a beloved holiday gift presented to the community annually by Ballet Theatre of Scranton since 1976. Among the many awards and recognitions, we have received over the past 45 years of The Nutcracker, we are proud to have been cited in national publications as the only Nutcracker Ballet given as a community gift in the United States. We are also proud to be the recipient of the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce “Hometown Star Award” for The Nutcracker’s cultural and economic impact on our community. From bare beginnings, The Nutcracker has grown to an impressive production featuring over 100 dancers, professional sets, costumes and mesmerizing special effects. To date, we have entertained close to 375,000 people and have come to be revered by the Northeastern Pennsylvania community and beyond. For many, it is their first introduction to this beautiful art form and for others, it is the only opportunity for families to witness such an extravagant theatrical production. Each year, the audiences keep attending and fill every seat for every performance.
This year, the production of The Nutcracker will be offered in The Theatre at North, Goodwill Industries. We know you will be pleased as we kick off the 2021 Christmas Season with our performances on the NEW dates of November 26, 27 and 28, 2021 at 2 pm and 7:30 pm.
Although we do not charge the public for tickets to The Nutcracker, the production is certainly not free to present. Over the years, we have experienced difficulty raising the necessary funds to continue our mission. As a result, we established The Nutcracker Annual Benefit Fund in 2008, whose purpose is to raise funds to preserve The Nutcracker and continue to present it in the spirit in which it was intended – as a gift. Your financial contribution of $100 or more will enable us to continue this gift to the community.
To thank you for your $100 donation, we will reserve up to 4 seats in your name at any performance of The Nutcracker. You will be acknowledged in the Nutcracker Program Book if your donation is received by the printing deadline of November 5, 2021. This year the health and safety of our event attendees are of the upmost importance. At this time, due to COVID-19 restrictions, all Nutcracker tickets will be sent by email to avoid lines at the box office. Please include an email address with your check as all tickets will be emailed. The cut-off date for benefactor tickets is November 5, 2021.
Your donation would be most appreciated. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt corporation, your donation may be tax deductible, as provided by law. Please consult your tax advisor.
Thank you for your generosity and support of this treasured holiday gift!
Most Sincerely, Ballet Theatre of Scranton Executive Council
