The actors, directors, crew, and staff of 42nd Street Moon are only part of the “Moon Family.” Without the support of individuals who share our enthusiasm for actively preserving and honoring the legacy of American Musical Theatre, 42nd Street Moon would never be able to “make great musicals sing again.”

It may sound clichéd, but truly, no donation is too small (although no donation is too large either!), and we are deeply appreciative for any amount of support we receive.

2016 was a year of great transition for 42nd Street Moon with the retirement of Co-Founding Artistic Director, Greg MacKellan and the welcome of our new Executive Directors, Daren A.C. Carollo and Daniel Thomas. Although transitions in leadership are often bumpy, we are extremely pleased that ours has been anything but – indeed, we are already seeing success and growth both onstage and off:

Baker Street was one of most successful and well-received season openers in years, leaving our audiences enthralled and raising the bar for Moon’s use of scenery and projections.
With the re-mounting of last year’s World Premiere smash hit Scrooge in Love! We have set ourselves a huge challenge, with a bigger cast, bigger set, and a much bigger theatre, moving the production to the beautiful Marines’ Memorial Theatre. Of course, this means a lot more seats to sell, and audiences are responding with joy and enthusiasm.

High on our list of priorities for 2017 is the enhancement of our audience experience; we want to make sure everything from purchasing tickets to the lobby and restroom appearance to the theatre seats themselves match the quality of what you see onstage.

We are working on strengthening our ties within the community. Over the past six months, we have forged partnerships with nearly a dozen theater companies in the Bay Area on everything from advertising trades to rehearsal space to potential collaborations on technical and construction space. And we are reaching beyond the theater community with the San Francisco Opera Guild and SFArtsEd, as well as a major project with a local symphony (details soon!). And of course, we continue to support local service organizations, offering tickets, backstage tours, and other behind-the-scenes opportunities to AIDS support organizations, Scout troops and low-income advocacy groups.

Finally, our new leadership is committed to expanding our Education and Outreach programs. We are already on board to triple the number of summer programs in 2017, and beginning in February we will be re-introducing year-round classes for students and adults. Bringing Moon into local schools through assembly programs, teaching artists, and assistance with producing student shows is another focus.

All of this requires financial resources above and beyond ticket sales alone. So, with the holidays approaching, we hope you will consider Moon in your year-end giving and estate planning. We cannot be more grateful for the generosity and long-time support of our dedicated Moon family. As we look ahead to our 25th Anniversary, we hope to ensure the next quarter century continues to bring the joy and magic of live, professional musical theatre to each and every one of you.

On behalf of all of us at 42nd Street Moon, we wish you a holiday season and new year filled with peace, happiness and light.
