A Great 2014 @ APAC – Thanks to YOU!

As 2014 draws to a close and the winter holidays approach, we find ourselves thinking of the things we all love about this time of year: the warmth of family and friends, generosity of spirit, festive surprises, and the promise of an exciting new year to come. And really, those wonderful things are part of Astoria Performing Arts Center all year round, thanks to the support of audience and community members like you!

Being an APAC audience member or artist is akin to joining an ever-growing, welcoming circle of friends. This year, both of us (Artistic Director Dev Bondarin & Executive Director Erin Moore!) are new members of this community and we feel the convivial embrace of the fantastic theatrical family here. The APAC community makes itself known throughout all of our programs during the year: from new dramas like In The Bones to spirited musical revivals like Allegro and from Senior Stars to Summer Stars, there is always sense of the camaraderie and joy.

The generosity of the holiday season is something we have felt all year from our Founding Patrons and from our wonderful volunteers who give their time to usher at our productions or distribute flyers around the neighborhood. We so appreciate your generosity, whether it is by making a donation, volunteering your time, or purchasing tickets to our productions and events.

And of course, who doesn’t like the rush of anticipation from seeing a present wrapped in colorful paper and ribbons? Gift giving is an integral part of the holidays, but that same feeling of anticipation and then a joyful surprise is something we feel throughout the year as we sit in the audience at opening night performances and awards ceremonies.

Though the holiday season signals the end of one year, new beginnings hold their own promise and inspiration. APAC is at the beginning of a new year and a new phase, and we are excited for what is to come. And we are so glad to have you on that journey with us.

In the spirit of the holidays, we ask for your support: please consider making a TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation to APAC today. APAC depends on the contributions of its supporters to make theatre which brings the warmth of family, generosity, surprise, and promise throughout the year. A gift of any amount will enable us to continue our work, to deepen ties with our community, and to make new friends.

To make your gift of any amount online, please click here, or learn more about our Patron Program and other ways to give. Donations can also be made by check payable to “APAC” and mailed to Astoria Performing Arts Center, c/o Kaufman Astoria Studios, 34-12 36th Street, Suite 1-232, Astoria, New York 11106.

We wish you a joyous holiday season, and look forward to seeing you in the new year as we continue to develop new works, revive exciting classics, and bring theatrical adventures to the community of Astoria and New York City!

Many thanks and best wishes,

Erin, Dev, Annie, and Katie
The APAC Staff
