Starting a non-profit theatre company in New York City is no small task! There are numerous costs associated with setup - steep legal fees for incorporation as a non-profit and 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status applications, promotional and marketing costs, rehearsal space costs, sets, costumes, props, and more production costs than we can even list. In addition, even though we're small, Cave Theatre Co. is dedicated to compensating OUTSIDE actors, stage managers, and other theatre tech professionals for their time spent working on our full productions. Even if it's just a small stipend, working professionals should be paid more than "exposure". This is something we feel very strongly about. That being said, the members and founders of Cave Theatre Co. do not receive any pay for the work we do - all donations and proceeds from ticket sales go back into producing more theatre.
It's a true labor of love. Lots and lots of love. As such, your donations are incredibly important, and we could not be more grateful.
*If you would like your donation to be tax-deductible, please contact us. While we are still in the process of the legal setup of our tax-exempt non-profit status applications, we can accept donations on behalf of our non-profit producing partner, Frigid NY.
