Matching Campaign Update

Leave a comment

Ticket sales alone do not cover the cost of putting on a show or a season. This year we are thrilled to be able to launch our first ever Ray of Light Donor Match Campaign. Through the graciousness of an anonymous patron, every dollar we raise this year through your generosity will be matched, up to ten thousand dollars. Think of the good just one small donation can do for the San Francisco musical theater community. Currently, we have raised $5120 towards our $10,000 goal!

ROLT announces 2013 season sponsorship with PopChips

Ray of Light Theatre is Proud to Announce PopChips as an Official 2013 Season Sponsor

 

SAN FRANCISCO – May 10, 2013: Ray of Light Theatre (www.rayoflighttheatre.com), San Francisco’s inimitable, non-profit, volunteer-managed musical theatre company is pleased to announce that PopChips is an official sponsor of its 2013 Season.

PopChips is generously donating bags of their delicious chips for Ray of Light’s 2013 Season. Patrons will be able to enjoy their tasty treats at upcoming performances.

PopChips has a simple mission: To bring the fun back to snacking. And thanks to the magic of popping, they have found a way to pop all the flavor in, while keeping fake stuff and at least half the fat of regular flavored chips out. They don’t fry them (unhealthy). They don’t bake them (un-delicious). Instead they take the finest naturally delicious ingredients, add a little heat and pressure, and pop! it’s a chip.  With their flavorful blend of seasonings and varieties, PopChips are a snack so delicious and crispy, you won’t even notice it’s healthier!

PopChips joins an esteemed list of sponsors for Ray of Light’s 2013 Season that also includes Drake’s Brewing Company, Mollie Stone’s, Visa, Eventbrite, Yelp! and beloved individual donors that span the Bay Area and beyond.

Ray of Light’s blockbuster 2013 season includes Into the Woods (May 31st through June 29th at San Francisco’s intimate Eureka Theatre), CARRIE the musical (October 4th – November 2nd at San Francisco’s historic Victoria Theatre), monthly cabaret nights at Martuni’s, special events and educational opportunities.

They provide diverse audiences with the opportunity to see live theatre by presenting affordable, high-quality productions that reflect the rich culture of the San Francisco Bay Area. They strive to provide authentic and practical experiences to allow artists to grow and develop their talent. Ray of Light Theatre is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization.

ROLT awarded VISA volunteer award

Leave a comment

SAN FRANCISCO – March 1, 2013: Ray of Light Theatre (www.rayoflighttheatre.com), San Francisco’s inimitable, non-profit, volunteer-managed musical theatre company is pleased to celebrate one of its own.  Visa Inc has contributed $5,000 to Ray of Light Theatre in honor of Patron Services Manager Gregory Sottolano’s volunteerism and his devoted service in support of the nonprofit’s mission to entertain, educate and enrich the San Francisco Bay Area community.

Gregory Sottolano joined the Ray of Light family in 2011 when he was cast as Charles Guiteau (BATCC Award – Best Featured Actor) in its award-winning production of Stephen Sondheim’s Assassins. Struck by the quality of the production and the sense of community that extended from the show itself, Greg immediately expressed interest in volunteering ‘behind the scenes.’  In just two short years, Greg has grown from a dedicated volunteer to an integral part of the management team as Ray of Light’s Patron Services Manager. In this role, he focuses on ensuring every guest who attends a Ray of Light Theatre production, class or cabaret has a meaningful and enriching experience.  Specifically, he is responsible for running the box office, managing the ‘front of the house’ (anything not related to the production on stage), planning concessions sales and management of the next generation of dedicated volunteers.

 “Ray of Light Theatre is honored to receive this $5,000 grant from Visa. Ray of Light Theatre relies solely on the sale of tickets and donations to fund and support the organization. This contribution of $5,000 is an incredibly significant sum of money to help us grow for the future,” said Jason Hoover, Artistic Director, Ray of Light Theatre. “Visa joins an esteemed list of contributors for Ray of Light’s 2013 season that also includes Mollie Stone’s, Yelp!, Eventbrite, Drake’s Brewery and generous individual donors that span the Bay Area and beyond. We congratulate Greg on his service and thank Visa for their generosity.”

Ray of Light’s blockbuster 2013 season includes Into the Woods (May 31st through June 29th at San Francisco’s intimate Eureka Theatre), CARRIE the musical (October 4th – November 2nd at San Francisco’s historic Victoria Theatre), monthly cabaret nights at Martuni’s, special events and educational opportunities.
