"We all know that something is eternal. And it ain’t houses and it ain’t names, and it ain’t earth, and it ain’t even the stars…everybody knows in their bones that something is eternal, and that something has to do with human beings…" ~Thornton Wilder, Our Town

Recently I have rediscovered my love for Our Town, a play that celebrates an “appreciation of the sacred ordinary,” a play that Edward Albee referred to as “the perfect American play.” The above words speak to me as a theatre artist, as someone always interested in the exploration of those things that make us human: things that unite rather than divide, that illustrate commonality rather than point out difference.

theatre KAPOW is in its tenth season: Faith & Story. We have committed to telling stories that illuminate the human experience and examine the eternal. We are producing work that asks far more questions than it answers. While I am proud of the journey of this company over the past nine and a half seasons, I know that our work is never done.

Every year at this time, we ask for your support to continue our work. It is true that we cannot continue to create the work we do without you. It is true that ticket sales alone cannot sustain a theatre company. But, it is also true that your support is about more than providing us funds to hire designers, build scenery, or purchase costumes. Your support provides the opportunity to continue telling stories and to continue the pursuit of an understanding of the human experience.  

I have had many discussions about the role of theatre in our lives. Is theatre meant to entertain or is it meant to inform? I’ll say that, for me, theatre is meant to remind. Live theatre puts artists and audience together, breathing the same air, and reminds us of who we were, who we are, and who we want to be.

Give a gift to theatre KAPOW. A monthly gift can make your dollars go even further so that we can continue to share the journey together - a journey in search of something more eternal and critical than houses, names, earth, and even stars.

Thank you.
Matt Cahoon, Artistic Director
