Dear Friends,

In case you, missed yesterday's newsletter, we hope you'll take a moment to read about this important project. Our Painting & Beautification Project at The Actors Theatre Workshop has passed its first milestone! This past weekend, 20 volunteers from NY Cares joined with members of our our staff and volunteer corps to prep and paint two of our classroom studios and the connecting hallway. The rooms look beautiful, clean and new!

We are now in phase two of the project - - repainting our lobby area, kitchen and two office spaces. Our goal is to completely refresh and repaint our entire 5000 square foot facility so we can continue to provide a welcoming and uplifting environment to all of the people who pass through our doors - - from the homeless children we serve in our after-school Builders of the New World program, to the students in the Scott Acting Conservatory, to our studio rental clients who help cover our operating expenses.

There are two ways that you can be a part of this wonderful community effort:
  • Make a Donation!! We need 35 gallons of Benjamin Moore China White paint to complete our painting job. Our interns and volunteers have been going door to door to seek donations from local hardware stores: last week, Kove Brothers Hardware at 189 7th Avenue very generously donated the 8 gallons of paint that we have already used. We are continuing to visit hardware stores to seek their donations - - but we may need to buy the remaining paint.

    Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help us buy paint. Your $35 donation will buy one gallon of paint, and your $175 donation will buy five gallons. No contribution is too large or small - - and every contribution is deeply appreciated! Please click here for a connection to our secure, online site. Your donation is a tangible way for you to advance our renewal project!

  • Volunteer!! This Sunday, March 30, and Wednesday - Sunday, April 2 - April 6 we will continue prepping and painting our facility. Roll up your sleeves, and join us! Interested volunteers can sign up for shifts on any of these five days from 10am to 3pm, 12pm to 5pm and 5pm to 10pm.

Please RSVP at, or call the theatre at (212) 947-1386 to volunteer. To donate, please click here for a connection to our secure, online site.

Thank you for your generosity and continued support of the mission of the Actors Theatre Workshop!
