Help us renovate and build our new home!
Thanks to our community of supporters, we are ready to expand our reach AND our space. Friends, it is time for Arlekin Players Theatre to have our own residence for rehearsals, events, and performances. Currently the growth and production capabilities of our troupe is limited by our space’s small size, forcing us to rent venues from other companies in the region to host events and performances.
With your generous support, we will remodel the space adjacent to our studio as an addition and stationary residence for our company’s season. Our dedicated volunteers are ready to get their hands dirty by scrubbing, painting and cleaning the new studio, but we need the help of professionals to get the space up to code and make sure our renovations are both smart and safe.
We are all excited begin building and embark on our journey to expansion. Your donation in any amount is meaningful for us as a non-profit organization, for we rely on the funding from our supportive community to continue our work.
The Catch: This is an all or nothing campaign. If we do not raise our pledged amount of $8,300, we receive none of your donations, so it is imperative we spread the word and inspire the community to help us build our home.
Arlekin Players Theatre was created in Boston in 2009 under the leadership of Artistic Director Igor Golyak. Arlekin Players Theatre has toured in New York, Chicago, and Hartford, Conn., and was a guest participant of the International Festival “Golden Lion” in Lviv, Ukraine. In September 2012, Arlekin Players Theatre was invited to perform its production of “The Guest,” by Alexander Pushkin, in Moscow Art Theatre School. Performed on one of the most admired stages in Moscow, the production was greeted with a standing ovation. In 2013 we were honored to represent the United States at the prestigious Mondial du Théâtre in Monaco, hosted by Prince Albert. Currently, we are planning the spring premiere of Natasha’s Dream, our first production in English. Our company takes strong pride in our emphasis on self-identity; we are viewed as a Russian troupe to our English audience yet we are not viewed in the same regard to our international audience. Essentially, we are a company of immigrants performing works that play on the ideas of cross-culture, home, and traditions, challenging the idea of nationality, and finding common themes that unite us all.
