Thirteen O’Clock Theatre is attempting to raise $5,000 this summer. This money, if raised, will support Thirteen O’Clock Theatre in touring its first ever children’s show and renting venues for rehearsals and multiple performances. It would also give the company the ability to purchase a multi-use portable sound system that could be used in almost every production.
It is our intention to use these funds in the following ways:
$1,500 - Performance Venue Cost
$1,500 - Rehearsal Venue Cost
$1,000 - Portable Sound System
$500 - Touring Costs of The Search for Odysseus
$500 - Production Costs of Doublespeak
Thirteen O’ Clock Theatre exists to provide a home for passionate artists devoted to the cultivation of the theatrical arts. We are committed to unifying and serving our community through high-quality, innovative performances in an inviting, enjoyable atmosphere. We strive to empower ourselves to forge a new path for theatre in the Rio Grande Valley.
Over the past five years, Thirteen O'Clock has grown through the hard work of volunteers, the kind donations of local businesses, the support of local art practitioners, and the revenue generated from our loyal audiences.
As we continue to grow, we are striving to make our mission of reaching the entire Rio Grande Valley come true while providing even more opportunities for those who call Thirteen O’Clock home. While we are continually working with different schools and arts organizations, the time has come for us to work toward becoming more of an independent company. For this reason, we are making capital investments that will lead us to a more sustainable future.
Thirteen O'Clock has grown at a remarkable pace largely due to the expertise of our volunteers and the support of local schools & businesses. In 2008 the company consisted of 20 volunteers and served 100 audience members, and has since grown to over 100 volunteers and 750 audience members in 2012. With your support we will be able to bring high-quality, innovative performances to more community members, offer more opportunities to artists to further their craft, and further cultivate the theatrical arts in the Rio Grande Valley for years to come.
