Dear Meany Friends:
Our return to live performances this past season was made possible by the support of patrons and donors like you, whose generosity helped offset the cost of presenting live performances even as ticket sales dropped to about 40% of a pre-pandemic season.
As we recover and rebuild, we ask for your support once again. This coming season, we’ll reboot key outreach programs such as:
- Free K-12 student matinees at Meany Center
- Community access to free concerts, workshops and artist events
- Technique classes with leading artists for UW students
In a normal season, ticket sales cover 50% of our production expenses — with not a penny towards our outreach. The last two years have been anything but normal; however, with your support, world-class performing arts at Meany Center will remain a part of our community for generations to come.
Your support in any amount makes a world of difference to Meany artists and staff partnering to keep performing arts alive.
