help us reach our 2014 fundraising goal!

This year, so far, Proximity has created two original performance pieces, "Teen Age" and "Mermaid's Tale" with casts of extraordinary groups of teens as well as the ongoing commitment of our company members.

This year we were awarded a grant from The Santa Barbara Bowl in support of our teen summer production. We thank our thousands of past and current supporters, and owe our progress to you all.

Thanks for your support. No amount is too little in support of what we hope to be bold and truth-telling theatre.

Most importantly, we hope to see each and every one of you at our shows. We do this work for you.

Love always,

P.S. Since Proximity is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, your contribution is tax deductible!
