Dear Upper Room Theatre Family,

It’s a fact…

We are continually grateful for your commitment to our theater program. Truthfully, without support from audience members and patrons like you, we wouldn’t be where we are now!

That’s why I’m reaching out today, with an important invitation for you, our loyal audience and fans

We’re producing this inspirational one-night-only event with award-winning music artist, Tatiana “Tajci” Cameron, to thank our community (YOU!) for the unwavering support. 

Emmanuel weaves seasonal and original music with the story of platinum pop superstar Tajci who escaped communism in Croatia (then Yugoslavia) to begin a life in the U.S.

Tajci’s powerful voice and storytelling has guided her to perform off-Broadway, write five books, perform a one-woman National Tour, and become a featured guest on EWTN. Plus, she’s also an accomplished songwriter for artists like Olivia Newton John. Join us for this moving, free evening!

As you know, we have a far-reaching impact. Not only is our mission to create moving, professional theatre experiences for you (like next year’s Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella), but 100% of the proceeds provide critical funding for our entire year of youth & young adult ministry at All Saints.

Because of our annual summer musical – and generous supporters like YOU – we create and lead over 293 youth and young adult activities in a typical year. In fact, Upper Room Theatre funds raised this year will make possible a long-awaited overseas mission trip for 12 high school seniors, as well as local and regional Service Mission Weeks for over 130 5th through 11th graders!

And it’s hard to believe this tremendous impact all started in 2002 in a hot gymnasium, with just a few performances, and a shoestring budget. Now, thanks to increasing audience support every year (and new technology), our family-friendly, award-winning musicals have even reached global audiences, too!

But Here's Where We Are Today...

While our theater has experienced much success, the last few years continue to make our mission difficult (especially with very high material costs). Like many organizations, we are still experiencing financial challenges affecting our ability to provide our youth and young adult events.

Which is why today we are inviting you to join our 2022 “Friends of Upper Room” campaign!

This year’s campaign will keep us strong and help us send teens to work with those less fortunate. To be honest, without the additional funds raised by this campaign and our upcoming performances, our future productions, youth outreach, and community impact will be significantly impacted.

And We Have New Very Special Benefits and Privileges For You...

When you donate today, we have special “thank you” gifts for you, ranging from tickets to upcoming performances…to ALL-NEW Upper Room Theatre collector’s items…to VIP backstage and behind-the-scenes experiences! Please review the details on our special Friends of Upper Room Theatre page for our complete list of new benefits and privileges.

Fact is, your support is vital to keeping our future bright for the countless lives we impact annually.

Would you please click the button below and make a year-end donation today? Our goal is within reach, but we can’t do it without you.

Donate by December 31 to get a tax-deduction for this year. And at the very same time, you’ll make a worthwhile impact on the work of our many talented volunteers, performers, musicians, directors, designers, technicians, youth, and young adults.

Again, we truly value your dedication to our mission and hope that you’ll support our special program. With your commitment today, we will continue to positively impact lives and share powerful musical journeys for many years to come. If you have any questions, please contact us via our contact page.

On behalf of all of us at Upper Room Theatre, we wish you a wonderful holiday season, and we look forward to seeing you at our 2023 shows! Thank you! 

May God bless you,

Rob Tessier
Upper Room Theatre Ministry
