Donor Newsletter - November 2017
Greetings!
Your support keeps history alive.
At the top of the season Jake's Gift was presented in Persephone Theatre's Backstage Stage. Part of the run included student matinees which are made accessible and affordable thanks to you. Jake's Gift was a one act play about a Canadian WW2 veteran's return to Juno Beach to find the grave of the brother who never came home.

Here is what one teacher had to say about her students' feedback:  “This was an incredible production. I'm pleased to have been able to expose my students to such a well-executed and unique performance about an important topic. They were really struck by the depth of feeling and the new perspectives that the play invoked.”

Your gift teaches the next generation about important Canadian history.

Your donation creates new friendships
When you donate to Persephone Theatre you are helping a young person create wonderful memories that will last for years. When you give you are creating a space where a student can take a Theatre School class or summer camp and make new friends.

Theatre classes and camps are available throughout the year. Each class or camp gives the students and opportunity to grow in their creativity and connect with others. Your gift makes this growth and connection possible
