Community Support Performance
Sponsored by The Winnipeg Foundation, the Community Support Performance is an outreach program that allows Rainbow Stage to introduce musical theatre to people who might not otherwise be able to attend an outdoor musical theatre performance. The program aims to provide an unforgettable musical theatre experience for groups who share our values of inclusivity and accessibility but do not have the resources to purchase tickets or capacity to attend individually.
The Community Support Performance is one of Rainbow Stage’s principal outreach programs and seeks to foster stronger and healthier links with our neighbourhoods and communities. Since 2007, we have given out over 10,000 Rainbow Stage theatre tickets to more than 100 different community organizations, and have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from attending groups and community leaders.
Invitations are extended to organizations having attended the previous season, and new organizations are provided the opportunity to apply. New applications are deemed successful based on two main considerations: a) they must be a not-for-profit, community-focused organization and b) they share and exemplify our core values of inclusivity and accessibility in their organizational programming.
