Support Burning Passions Theatre

I just got an email announcing the upcoming tenth anniversary of Burning Passions Theatre, which operates out of Toronto. They are asking for donations to support their ongoing work of theatre in the service of social change.

The group's web site says:

Burning Passions Theatre was formed in 1998 as a woman-positive theatre company devoted to telling the stories of women and youth, and to the issues of social justice. A registered charity, Burning Passions Theatre is committed to equality in gender relations, cultural diversity, and community empowerment. Burning Passions Theatre is operated by a volunteer board of directors, and guided by Artistic Producer, Laurel Smith

The only BPT production I have seen was Ontario, Yours Too in 2002, but I know they have put on lots of other great stuff over the years and have several exciting projects currently in the works which you can learn more about by poking around their web site. In addition, I have worked with a few of the folks associated with BPT in other political contexts, and they are niftysupercool, so I hope you can support their work in this area!

You can donate by cheque: mail the form with your cheque to: Burning Passions Theatre, PO Box 73620, 509 St. Clair Ave. W., Toronto, ON, M6C 1C0. You can also click on the "Donate Now" button on the web site.
