2013 Revenue Reaches Close to $200,000

As former board member Alexandra Billings put it so simply, Season of Concern is "family helping family." In 2013, collections spearheaded by producing companies and the casts and crews of 29 plays, sales of the second Season of Carols Holiday CD (many thanks to Eugene Dizon and Cory Goodrich), and numerous individual gifts raised almost $200,000. Funds will benefit members of the Chicago Theatre community and provide support for organizations providing services to individuals living with HIV or AIDS.

Here is a list of the theatres and casts who participated in the 2013 Campaign with opening night gifts made by company members and/or audience solicitations:  About Face Theatre (We 3 Lizas), Bohemian Theatre Ensemble (Kiss of the Spiderwoman), Chicago Shakespeare (The Merry Wives of Windsor and Henry VIII), Court Theatre (Proof, An Illiad and Seven Guitars), Pride Films and Plays, (Directions for Restoring the Apparently Dead), Drury Lane Oakbrook (Hello, Dolly!), Elegy Company, First Folio (Cymbeline), Goodman Theatre (A Christmas Carol), Hell in a Handbag, Karen Bronson’s Cabaret, Lookingglass Theatre Company (Metamorphoses), Marriott Lincolnshire (South Pacific, 9 to 5, and Mary Poppins), Mercury Theatre (A Christmas Schooner), Music on Stage (Pajama Game and Oliver!), Northlight Theatre, Paramount Theatre (Fiddler on the Roof), Raven Theatre (A Trip to Bountiful), Remy Bumppo (An Inspector Calls), Royal George (Old Jews Telling Jokes), The Ruffians (Burning Bluebeard), Theatre at the Center (A Christmas Carol), Theo Ubique (A Very Merry Madrigal), and TimeLine Theatre Company (Concerning Strange Devices and The Normal Heart).

Thank you to everyone who participated in collecting funds for Season of Concern and to all those who contributed so generously.
