$20 will get you a drink and a raffle ticket.

All proceeds will go to support Co-Op Theatre East's first season.
As a collective, Co-Op Theatre East (COTE) will develop and produce theatre to create artistic dialogue on social and political issues, as reflected in our mission statement: Co-Op Theatre East believes in the power of art to foster a dialogue for social change. We provide an entertaining performance forum in which to ask evocative, challenging questions of artists and audiences on our way to creating collaborative answers.
COTE's still-evolving 2008-09 Season is already taking an exciting shape:
-In September we will present Questionable Content, our inaugural One-Act Festival, at EndTimes Underground @ The Gene Frankel Theater, featuring six plays from around the United States. Chosen from hundreds of submissions, these exciting new plays address issues from religious tolerance to living in a security-obsessed world.
-November will see the debut of co-founder Ashley Marinaccio's original full-length Documentary: A Suicide Narrative, an engaging and emotional reflection on acceptance in the wake of tragedy at a young age, also at EndTimes Underground.
-This winter, we will collaborate with ThingNY (www.thingny.com), one of New York's most exciting avant-garde classical music ensembles, on an evening of original experimental work exploring the dialogue between theatre and music.
-In the spring, COTE will present a collaborative production with actress Theresa Johnson of the beautiful and moving play My Name is Rachel Corrie. Created from the writings of a young peace activist whose life was cut tragically short, this play is a testament to the potential for one dedicated person to make a profound impact on the world.
These projects (and more!) are in the works for COTE, and we couldn't be more excited to see them come to fruition and share them with you and the world! It's been said that theatre is the art of the possible, which we fully believe. Even as a new group, our ideas are already attracting the attention of established players in the theatre scene, and we can't wait to show just how amazing and vital Co-Op Theatre East can be.
But we can't do it without your help!!!
