On behalf of the artists, the Board, and the staff of the Arts Club Theatre Company, we want to thank you for your interest in becoming a Friend. The financial support we receive from people like you—no matter the amount— significantly effects our ability to stage plays that are exciting, engaging, and inspiring to our audience. Why do we need to raise money? As a not-for-proﬁt charity, the Arts Club must raise additional funds beyond our ticket sales, as we only generate about 50% of our operating revenue from subscription and single ticket sales. Increasing the quality of our productions requires additional resources.
|Your contribution also supports the many Arts Club community programs
we operate, including Student Matinees, the Understudy Program, and
Student Rush. This is why we ask you to join us as a Friend of the
Arts Club. Your tax-deductible contribution of $75, $100, $200 or more
will help us with our community programs and ensure that we continue
to bring you quality work on our stages. Please review the enclosed

Since the beginning of the Arts Club Theatre Company in 1964, in a converted gospel hall on Seymour Street, the Arts Club has nurtured the talents of such notable actors as Michael J. Fox, Brent Carver, Eric McCormack, Michael Bublé, Nicola Cavendish, Janet Wright, Jeff Hyslop, Jackson Davies, and Ann Mortifee.
Our commitment to new play development has resulted in over 70 world premieres and has helped foster the writing careers of Morris Panych, Timothy Findlay, Brad Fraser, Anosh Irani, David King, Michele Riml, John Lazarus, Wendy Lill, Michel Tremblay, George F. Walker, and Tomson Highway.
With the financial support of our Friends our potential is limitless. Our ability to premiere new work, stage enchanting musicals and intelligent dramas, and extend our artistic and business leadership further into the community is directly tied to the passion of our artistic spirit and the strength of our financial resources.
What our Friends say:
“If everybody can give their part—even a small contribution helps—then the Arts Club would be so much freer to pursue their artistic dreams.”
—Kathryn McNeight, friend since 2000
“I give what I can—$75—as a gesture of support and appreciation for all the Arts Club does for me and for the city of Vancouver. I hope others will join me in making a gift in support of this important and dynamic theatre company.”
—T. Thomas, friend since 2006
