Donate: 25 for 25!
We asked and you’re responding. Please help us reach our goal!
Through CanadaHelps, e-transfer and mailed-in donations, our campaign to raise $25,000 for our 25th season has begun! We’ve launched an indiegogo campaign to give you another option and make it easy for your to share with friends all over the world! Please note, if you donated through another means, or prefer to, we’ll still give you the Indiegogo perks! Please share the link! Why donate? We’ve been working away for almost 25 years and don’t often take a moment to celebrate our origins, our artists, and our communities – Two Planks has toured to over 130 communities across Canada, with hundreds of artists, developed and premiered shows from Westray to Rockbound and now brings thousands of people to our Ross Creek shows. By donating, you help us ensure the theatre stays strong, and ready for a bigger season full of wonder and celebration.
We’re gearing up for our 25th season, 10 years off the grid!
Two Planks and a Passion Theatre is committed to creating unforgettable experiences through one of the oldest mediums that exists: the theatre. Our award-winning Theatre Off The Grid, set outdoors on 178 acres at the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts, is a forum where our most treasured stories and legends come to life through the ingenious invention of some of Canada’s most accomplished artists. Whether you are regular patron or new to our theatre, we welcome you to experience a thrilling marriage of nature and the imagination.
After a wonderful season for both our critical and audience response (“Two Planks infuses The Tempest with sense of wonder…masterful… delightful…an exquisite visual experience, and Turn of the Screw is “an unforgettable and chilling theatrical experience…powerful…and vivid.”), we have already turned our attention to the exciting possibilities of our 25th season next year.
While we are still working on all the celebrations, we have already committed to our two theatre off the grid shows. Click here for more.
