This Fund is intended to help replace lost income due to theatre closures. The Fund is available to all those who have had to stop work and are not getting paid, including those who were on contract, part time employees and those working on a stipend which was not paid. The Fund is limited so we ask that only those who are in extreme need right now apply to the fund. We ask that those who have other income and can cover their expenses at least temporarily or those who are eligible for unemployment refrain from applying at this time so that those in the most need might take advantage of the limited amount of money available.
