Request for support from Crossroads Theatre Company


An Appeal from André De Shields
- Two-time Tony Award nominee
- Emmy Award winner - Ain't Misbehavin'

Greetings, Friends of Crossroads:

First and foremost, as 2012 transitions into 2013, I am writing to wish both spiritual abundance and material prosperity for you all.

Part of life's prosperity has to do with how we choose to heal and inspire our lives. Here at Crossroads, we like to think that we are your partners in that process. And we do that through our artistic mission of presenting the best theatre, plays and musicals, at affordable prices.

Productions at Crossroads reflect the diversity and tell the stories of not only the multicultural communities of New Jersey, but communities across the nation and around the globe.

Service to the community is the very purpose of not-for-profit art centers such as Crossroads. I cannot stress enough how your support of that vision and artistic process makes it possible for the Crossroads Theatre Company to continue its pursuit of excellence.Money is not why we do what we do, but it is a necessary element of how we do what we do.

In the world of not-for-profit theatre the price of a ticket alone cannot pay the total cost of quality productions. That is why I am making this appeal on behalf of my artistic home, Crossroads Theatre Company. Art matters; theatre and the artists who create it have value.

Make that value a part of your daily lives by supporting Crossroads.
