The Campaign for Montclair Operetta Club

August 2014

Dear Friend of M.O.C.,

The Montclair Operetta Club is blessed with many friends like you.  We look forward to seeing you at the theatre for each production, and we hope you enjoy visiting with us as much as we enjoy welcoming you to our “house.”

For nearly ninety years, M.O.C. has been a fixture on the local arts scene. We hope it has been a fixture on your calendar as well.  There was always another show in the works, new actors gracing our stage and new friends coming to the box office.

How would you feel if a friend like M.O.C. disappeared?  Fall arrived, and there was no email from the Club announcing its upcoming production.  You experienced none of the pleasant anticipation, waiting for another evening or matinee filled with music.  You would have no chance to venture to the Westminster Arts Center to see some of your favorite actors, or meet new ones.

Sadly, we are facing the real possibility that your friend M.O.C. might disappear.  With the economy still fragile, support for the arts is spread as thin as it ever has been.  We strive to provide you with the finest entertainment while still keeping ticket prices affordable.  This means that ticket receipts alone cannot sustain the production of a musical.  Donations from our friends are vital to support not only the show itself, but also the “behind the scenes” expenses like heating oil and electricity that are so necessary for rehearsals and scenery construction.

You can help by making a donation, no matter the size, to launch M.O.C. into its 90th season.  How many nonagenarians do you know?  Won’t you please help the grand dame of community theatre stride forward into her tenth decade?  Click here to donate via PayPal using your credit card, or mail a check payable to “Montclair Operetta Club” to 494 Valley Road, Upper Montclair, NJ  07043.
