Blackbird Theater is ending a two-year hiatus this October with the return of our original comedic thriller Twilight of the Gods.
Help Blackbird come back strong by joining us for Wednesday’s Big Payback event. Our goal is to raise a modest $2,000.
Blackbird founders Wes Driver and Greg Greene are putting up $500 each for matching donations. That’s $1,000 in dollar-for-dollar matching funds.
Somewhere around 4,000 Middle Tennesseans have seen at least one of our shows since our start in 2010. If just 100 Blackbird friends donate $10 on Wednesday, our $2,000 goal will be easily met!
Q: Wait a minute, aren’t you guys just paying yourselves with the matching funds?
A: No, because Wes and Greg, along with our board, receive no payment for our work with Blackbird, and never have! It’s truly a labor of love. With no paid staff, our overhead is typically only 5% of our annual budget. That means 95% of your gift goes directly to the stage!
Thanks for considering Blackbird!
