Community GiveBack 2020

Dear Friends,

Throughout this time of uncertainty, mad Theatre’s Board of Directors feels the need to step up and give back to our community that has been so supportive of us over the years. While our organization is also experiencing economic losses, we know that others are suffering even greater hardships.

Therefore, mad Theatre of Tampa has decided to begin working with Feeding Tampa Bay, and we have already pledged $500 to help those in need. While it is never easy to select one charitable organization over another, we feel we can have a significant impact with this contribution. Additionally, all of our Board members have donated personally to make this gift.

We thoroughly understand that many of our patrons, talent, families, and friends are affected by COVID-19 and may not be able to participate; however, we would like to extend an invitation to those who are able to join us in supporting our community during this time of need. During the month of May, your donation to mad Theatre of Tampa will be given 100% to Feeding Tampa Bay, and your gift will earn you some mad recognition!

Therefore, mad will contribute up to $1000 in addition to every single penny that you send us. This community has believed in us, and we believe in you.

You can make your donation by clicking on the blue donate button above, or by contacting our treasurer, D.J. Holt, to make arrangements, at madtheatredj@gmail.com.

To close, we turn to the words of the Tony Award-winning songwriter, Charlie Smalls:

Living here, in this brand new world
Might be a fantasy,
But it taught me to love
So it’s real, real to me.

And I’ve learned
That we must look inside our hearts to find
A world full of love
Like yours
Like mine

Like home.

Thank you, Tampa Bay, for being our family and our home.
