Producing musical theatre is expensive! Producing quality musical theatre is even more so. Many people do not realize just how much money it takes to put on a large-cast show. The box at right shows an example of some of our expenses for a recent show that was performed on the LHS Main Stage:

So, where does IMP get enough money to perform a show? From ticket sales and donations. Unfortunately, the revenue from ticket sales is often around the $24,000 mark, leaving a deficit of $14,000.

That's where you come in. Since IMP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit agency, donations of any kind (cash is especially nice) are 100% tax-deductible. If you own a business and wish to provide sponsorship for some facet of a show, we welcome that as well. Just call (256) 415-7469 and let us know!

Donations are also accepted at the box office before and during most performances, or you can make a donation via PayPal® using the links below.

Thanks for your generosity!
