Thanks to the overwhelming support of our community, 2017 will be our third year as a Free Public Theater, offering sliding scale and pay what you can ticketing for ALL of our performances. The Imaginists public theater model WORKS. We are reinventing the theater from a profit driven model to one sustained and supported by community.

And we are pleased to announce The Imaginists have been selected by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation to receive a Sustainability Planning Grant to help us prepare for the future and any rough seas ahead for participants, our communities and our local and regional impact.  

Since we’re a theater that challenges the status quo, we’ve recognized it’s unlikely that we’re going to get contributions from the top 1%.  To keep it going, we need to ask for help from you to cover artist’s small stipends and meagre operating expenses.  Please join others to give a small amount (no more than $10) per month.  

Having a theatre company in our community such as the Imaginists is an invaluable resource for artists, patrons and students alike. Through the Imaginists our students at Elsie Allen HS are given the opportunity to see innovative, thought provoking, bilingual, live theatre at no cost to them or the school! I am in awe of what they do. Most theatre companies a are struggling financially and are constantly raising ticket prices making theatre out of reach for many in our community. The Imaginists insist on holding true to their mission of moving ‘towards a free theatre’ with their’ People’s Theatre Fund”. Bravo and thank you!!
