Happy New Year!
As we say "good bye" to 2020, we'd like to wish you a happy and healthy New Year!
Ushering in a new year is often a time for reflection, and this year that may be more true than ever. This past year has helped many of us realize what a full life we have. And what is theatre? A direct reflection of LIFE: society, politics, race, religion and so much more. The pandemic has brought many of us to very vulnerable places. Our minds want to focus on SOMETHING... or nothing. At times, we want to lose ourself in someone else's world, with someone else's problems and mysteries and celebrations. We look forward to a few hours a day to dismiss our reality and to be transported somewhere else. There, we see, understand, are woken up; we realize another race, culture, generation… or something else. Thank you for taking that journey with me. We, here, don't want to travel alone. So, we are looking forward to seeing you, taking your hand and bringing you along into another world. I really, more than ever, am looking forward to seeing you there… at the THEATRE!
After closing in March, we have missed you so much! Although we were not able to produce a "regular" 24th season, we are grateful for your continued support and what we were able to accomplish in 2020. In June/July we completed a safe and successful in-person kids theatre camp. Co-produced by Anthony Nannini, PCT brought you a streaming production of Popcorn Falls, which was well supported by many patrons. Our actors and other creative team members were itching for things to do, so under the direction of Derik Shopinski, we brought you our annual Sounds of the Season holiday concert. Of course, this year was an "at home edition" via a streaming service. We are working on future productions to bring you this way, until we are able to reopen after safe protocals have been established.
Through the generosity of many - both donors and volunteers - we are making improvements at the theatre including upgrading our electrical and lighting system, refurbishing and creating new stage curtains, reorganizing two decades worth of props and other materials, adding new flooring in a dressing room and several other improvements. And as you may have seen, we remodeled the main offices just before the shutdown.
As always, any donation is appreciated and will be put to good use.  Thank you for considering PCT in any final end-of-year donations and well as future contributions in 2021!
If you are unable to personally give today, there are two other simple ways to support PCT! 
1) Nominate Us! Thursday, December 31 is the last day...
Your "nomination" could help PCT receive a $5,000 Grant! The more nominations we receive the greater our chances are to be randomly selected for this Inland Empire Grant.
Thank you for following the link and completing the form! (PCT is located in Palm Springs, Riverside County.)
2) Sign up for Amazon Smile!
Did you know that every time you make a purchase through Amazon, a portion could be donated to PCT? It’s that easy! Just log on to smile.amazon.com and designate Palm Canyon Theatre as your designated charity to support with each purchase. PCT has already received thousands of dollars in donations from just this simple act of kindness - that you can participate in too. Thanks to those of you who already do!
We appreciate you more than you know - for what is performing without an audience? We cannot wait to see you and perform for you (in person) again! In the meantime, please watch for upcoming streaming productions. 
Wishing you the very best in 2021!
