2016 Boston Theater Marathon is Sunday, May 8th!

BTM_XVIII_blog_headerOne of TCBF’s most important fundraisers is the Boston Theater Marathon, which will take place Sunday, May 8, from noon until 10 p.m., at the Calderwood Pavilion Theatre at the Boston Center for the Arts, 427 Tremont Street.  The Marathon features productions of fifty plays by fifty New England writers, produced by fifty different theatre companies.  There’s no better way to see a cross section of the immense pool of talent that makes up the New England theatre community than attending the Boston Theater Marathon.

And the net proceeds for the event go to the Theatre Community Benevolent Fund.  That’s right, for $35 you can watch TEN HOURS of new plays, five (or more) new plays every hour, and a portion of that money helps fund TCBF’s financial support of theatre artists  suffering from catastrophe.

You can stay for an hour or try to last the whole day, but you’ll not only have a good time, you’ll also do some good.  That’s a tough deal to beat.

The basics

The Theatre Community Benevolent Fund (TCBF) is a non-profit theatre community organization administered by StageSource for the benefit of its individual and organizational members and the theatre artists who are or have been employed by those organizations who face dire need and require financial assistance. TCBF provides financial relief in a confidential, respectful manner to individual and organizations facing extreme illness, catastrophic acts of nature, and other events such as vandalism/theft, and who have limited or no resources with which to handle such occurrences.
