JAG Productions, the African-American Upper Valley theater company that is propelled by producing artistic director Jarvis Antonio Green, is in the midst of fundraising $100,000 for its second season. It just announced it has received a $10,000 matching-gift donation from an anonymous donor. That means any donations made by the end of September up to $10,000 will get doubled.

Why donate? Here’s how JAG Productions puts it:

80% of that budget will go towards getting the most exceptional, diverse artists to the Upper Valley and 20% will go towards overhead.

 

Not only are you investing in the first black theatre company in the Upper Valley — you are paving the way to the first black LORT theatre (largest professional theatre association of its kind) in our nation!
