River City Rep depends on the Shreveport-Bossier communities'
generous donor support on this day of giving to strengthen our productions and the programs we bring to you.
As we continue to grow our audiences, your donations will assist us in bringing professional actors to our community to work with serious local actors which will strengthen the depth and range of the talent that you, as an audience, will benefit from.
On Tuesday May 3rd you may join us for an open house event that will feature music, an inside peek into the back stage workings of The Rep and light hors d'oeuvres and wine and sodas.
The event is being held at the Neil Johnson Photography Studios at 1301 Louisiana
Ave (at the corner of Louisiana and Stoner a building down from The Village
Grille) from 5 pm to 8 pm.
Computers will be available to make your donations.

The Shreveport Regional Arts Council recently announced that River City Repertory Theatre, along with 12 other regional arts organizations, will be receiving funding from a federal stimulus package through the National Endowment for the Arts for the restoration and preservation of jobs through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).
This program is part of President Obama's effort to stimulate the economy and preserve jobs. Funds from this grant will allow jobs and salaries to be maintained which may have been lost due to the recent economic downturn. This is the first NEA grant that has been awarded to River City Rep.
River City Repertory Theatre is financially supported by The Community Foundation of Shreveport/ Bossier-Carolyn W. & Charles T. Beaird Donor Advised Fund. The funding provides support for the theatre's purchasing of technical equipment.
As River City Rep moves toward having a permanent
home in downtown Shreveport, the theatre company is actively pursuing purchasing the technical equipment the company will need for future productions in its new space.
River City Repertory Theatre is the recipient of two Louisiana Division of the Arts/Decentralized Arts Funding grants for the 2009-10 theatre season. The funds from the LDOA/DAF grants were used to produce MOONLIGHT AND MAGNOLIAS which was a participant in the EYE-20 CREATIVE CORRIDOR’s “ TRIUMPH OVER TRAGEDY” project and will be additionally used throughout the season to financially assist artistic salaries and benefits.
Louisiana Division of the Arts/Decentralized Arts Funding grants provide operating funds for non-profit arts organizations that are seeking to expand operations and also to produce specific projects. The state grants provide support to arts organizations that have made an impact locally, statewide, regionally and nationally or internationally.
