Under the co-leadership of Managing Director Angela Bayler and Artistic Director Trista Duval, Centerstage Theatre has been working exceptionally hard over the past 3 years to raise the bar of theatre in the Federal Way and surrounding areas. By producing more well-known plays, hiring more experienced local actors, and rebuilding a bridge to the community, Centerstage has been on an upward trajectory. Although COVID-19 restrictions have necessitated the slowing of operations, we do not plan on stopping anytime soon!
Centerstage employs around 50 actors, 5 directors, 3 choreographers, 5 stage managers, lighting designers, costume designers, assistant stage managers, set designers, set builders, set painters, and 8 high school interns. Our goals are to pay these contractors a living wage, but right now we can only offer stipends for work they bring to our stage. Centerstage has fought to keeps its doors open over the past couple of years and has been reaching a place of balance and strength recently, but we cannot stay in this balance without support from our community as we move forward.
Time for a little tax talk:
Centerstage Theatre is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, so your donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Did you know the CARES Act offers several new charitable giving tax deductions and incentives? If you choose not to itemize deductions, you can take a new $300 ($600 for married filing jointly) “above-the-line” deduction for cash donations to non-profit organizations like Centerstage Theatre. If you do choose to itemize deductions, the 60% AGI limit for cash donations has been increased to 100%.
