do I have to pay to become part of theatre86?
no. we want to enrich the community by bringing the artists directly to the public. we find that emerging artists often do not want to pay high membership fees to be able to produce their work. because of this, many new artists are hidden from the public eye. we want to change this.
do I get paid as a theatre86 artist?
maybe. as a non-profit, we always accept donations. while street performers are on site, we collect donations on behalf of all the artisits. we will distribute the earnings among the artists that performed during that time period.
does theatre86 get a cut?
yes. theatre86 splits all donations into four categories: artists (that's you), community (fellow non-profit groups), production (performance costs), and company (licensing fees, royalty fees, etc.). theatre86 'keeps' the company portion.
why should I be a part of theatre86? can't I just do it by myself?
sure - but we would rather have you with us! theatre86 takes a lot of the grunt work out of being a performer. we can help you arrange for performance spaces, make sure you have a proper license, help with advertising, as well as making new friends. we would love for you to become a part of our group!
where are you?
we are everywhere. that is our vague explanation to enhance the fact that we are run out of our living rooms. we don't have a permanent location yet, but we are working very hard on it.
