In an effort to get the Myron L. Dale Production Fund off to a great start, we are looking for Advance Gifts that can be announced at the 40th Anniversary Gala. A theatrical production is a collective endeavor and, with that in mind, we've established a number of collective fundraising efforts and encourage you to give to one, two or all of those to which you belong.
