The Pasadena Playhouse Asks: Save Our Butts!

Aug 11, 2014

Seats_Campaign_8.6It seems the Pasadena Playhouse needs some new seats. Actually, they’ve all ready been shipped. They’ll be arriving on August 29th and they need help paying the bill. Normally in a situation like this, a stern parent might offer a lesson on financial responsibility, plodding on way past a person’s expected attention span, about not buying something you don’t have the funds for, but then this is our Pasadena Playhouse. And the muppets are asking, too. What’s one to do?

Over the course of its rich performance history, The Playhouse has entertained close to ten million people.  While theatrical programming remains contemporary and fresh, the current seats and carpeting – which were installed over 20 years ago – have become worn down from a high volume of heavy use.  On August 29, new seats will arrive but we need to raise $25,000 on-line by then!  Please chip in by making a gift of $10 or $20 or more today.

Make a gift today! The butt you save may be your own. (Official text)
