COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund

× It takes a village to raise a theatre... or something like that. That's why we're so grateful for every contribution that we receive. Please know that your support means the world to us and goes directly back into the work we're doing to create quality, professional theatre in downtown Sydney. Every dollar we receive means more that we can put into lights, costumes, scenery, and into the pockets of Cape Breton artists.

These are unsettling and unprecedented times and your support means the world. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

Radical Access Campaign

× Dear Friends of the HAT,

In just six years we’ve had tremendous success, but COVID-19 presents an unprecedented challenge. We want to rise to that challenge with something equally unprecedented. Something radical.

We want to be the first Professional Community-Funded Theatre in Canada.

We want to provide tickets to all 12 of our annual Mainstage Productions to anyone and everyone…

Free of charge.

The number one barrier to arts and especially theatre is socio-economic considerations. We want to eliminate that barrier completely, not just for the marginalized sectors of our community, but for everyone.

We need your help.

We are asking you to commit to a monthly donation at whatever level you are comfortable with: $5 a month, $25 a month, $100… no donation is too small or too big.

As a Not-for-Profit Charitable Organization, we’ll be able to offer you a Tax-Deductible Receipt at the end of the year. But you’ll also be making history as every donation puts us closer to fully funding our 12 Mainstage Productions and ensuring #RadicalAccess to anyone and everyone who steps foot in our theatre.It’s a radical proposal, but we believe it’s also incredibly doable.

If every one of our 1500 regular subscribers committed to a donation of only $25 per month, we would already be 75% of the way to our TIER 5 Goal. And with the tax-deduction from your receipt, you’d actually be paying less than the cost of all three seasonal Ticket Packages.

It’s a win-win, but we need you to believe.

Make your donation today. Prove us right and ensure the HAT will stand tall for years to come. Embrace the unprecedented and help us make history.
