Frequently Asked Questions
Don’t I support RCT when I buy a ticket? When you buy a ticket to the movies or to a baseball game, the cost of that ticket covers 100% of the expenses associated with producing that event. When you buy a ticket to the theatre, the cost of that ticket barely covers the expenses associated with producing the play. Theaters are non-profit organizations which thrive off the generosity of their donors.
Why don’t you just raise your ticket prices? A night at the theatre should be financially possible for everyone! Our goal is to keep our ticket prices in a range where everyone can afford to go to the theatre. Ticket sales decrease with each increase in ticket price and many families would be unable to support us. We would earn more money per ticket, but we would lose a significant number of ticket buyers
Is my donation tax deductible? YES – to the full extent allowed by law! After your donation is processed by our office you will receive a thank you letter with all the information necessary. Please contact your tax advisor for further information.
What do you do with my donation? We spend it on the shows and instructors in our season! Next time you attend a performance, just look at the costumes, props, and scenery to see the affect of your generosity. Appreciate the level of excellence the young performers have achieved. You can be assured that your donation will directly fund the productions in the current season. When attending a Riverdale Children’s Theatre production, take pride in knowing your contribution is reflected on that stage.
