Professional Theatre For Maine

Christopher's Birthday!


This March, The Public Theatre has a lot to celebrate.

Christopher Schario, our Artistic Director is celebrating his 70th birthday!

AND a generous anonymous donor has offered to match all March donations!

We asked Christopher what he wanted for his birthday, and although the idea of a puppy tempted him, he told us to ask our audience to celebrate his birthday by making a donation to the theatre.

“Remind them that whatever they donate will be worth twice as much this month.  Let’s celebrate my birthday with the most successful fundraising campaign we’ve ever done for the theatre – that would make me very happy”.

Here are some Happy Birthday number suggestions for you . . .

  • his age ($70)
  • his years as Artistic Director ($26)
  • the total number of his pre-show speeches! ($1,000,000!) OK, maybe that's a slight exaggeration
  • any amount you can offer to show your support ($??)

Please consider making a contribution of any amount as part of our MARCH MATCH.

If you donated just $26 (Christopher’s years as Artistic Director) your donation will have the impact of $52!  DONATING HIS AGE HAS A $140 IMPACT!!

And thank you for your generous support. We couldn’t wish for a better audience.
