What a wonderful holiday season this has been for us. Because of your generous gifts, our DIVAS AFTER DARK Fundraising celebration was a magical success!
With utter excitement, we are proud to announce that your support has secured the rights to New Dawn's first full production, CROWNS by Regina Taylor, which will honor our mission while producing a rich, exciting play with soul stirring music in September of 2019!
New Dawn Theatre is committed to amplifying voices not often heard by producing plays written by women, minorities and LGBTQ communities, while onstage we highlight artists of all walks of this wonderful life.
New Dawn Theatre is a tax exempt organization under IRC Section 501(c) (3). Donors can deduct contributions they make under IRC Section 170.
