We Need You!
Are you a theater kid at heart? To a theater kid, nothing is more exciting -- or more meaningful -- than being in a show. Donate to Polaris and share your passion for performing with a new generation of theater kids.
Theater is a life-changing, positive force in the lives of children.
Kids gain confidence & self-esteem through theater. They learn creative problem solving skills -- the ability to come up with new ideas and new ways of thinking about old problems. Theater teaches kids the "soft skills" they need to succeed in today's world -- skills which are in greater demand than ever before.
Why So Sad?
With your help, the final curtain doesn't need to be a time for tears! Contribute to Polaris and there will be more shows, more opening nights, and more happy kids.
Sometimes a child just needs a break.
Some kids have a lot to handle. The loss of a family member, a traumatic divorce, family troubles. Bullying at school. Anxiety. It truly makes a difference to have a special place to go that's fun and safe, kind and friendly. A place to go where a child can be themselves, be accepted, and be with other kids who share their passion. Polaris is one of those places. Support Polaris and you will help heal a child.
Give these kids an experience they will remember for the rest of their lives.
Kids grow immeasurably during their time with Polaris. Their lives become richer and fuller. Theater absolutely transforms the lives of our young people. But the magic can’t happen without your generosity.
Many of the kids you support today will support theater in the decades to come.
If you have any doubts about whether your generosity makes a difference in the lives of these kids, please come to an opening night performance and experience the magic for yourself. Watch these kids come alive on stage -- feel their excitement. There's nothing quite like it, and it's contagious. Opening night at a Polaris show is always a night to remember.
The full amount of your donation goes towards supporting the kids' musical theater education and their productions. This includes the musical director, the stage manager, lighting, the theater rental, rehearsal space, performance rights, printing, costumes, sets, scenery, props and more.
Tuition, ticket sales and concession sales make up the difference. But without your support, there just isn't enough money left over after each show to cover Polaris' other obligations -- which include insurance, storage website and other essential services. Your financial contribution means we can continue to serve the community -- and offer more opportunities to more kids.
