Dear Hupy and Abraham,

Thank you for supporting First Stage’s 23rd annual Make Believe Ball to be held on March 3,2018. Your Bronze Sponsorship will help to further our mission of transforming lives through theater.

In 1987, First Stage began as a small theater company with a goal of providing professional theater for young people and families. Now in our 31st season, First Stage is one of the nation’s acclaimed professional children’s theaters, touching the lives of over 140,000 people from southeastern Wisconsin through:

  • Professional theater for all ages
  • Theater Academy training that fosters life skills through stage skills
  • Theater in Education programs that inspire, motivate and educate

The three program areas described above are equally fundamental to the First Stage mission and share a common purpose- to educate and enrich the lives of our community’s  young people. Your generous support of First Stage shows that you value our work and believe in our mission. We appreciate your commitment to developing leaders of the future.
