McGIVES! Update

Your generous year-end financial support combined with the efforts of the Monterey County Gives campaign, will give Project Equal Access the start it deserves. Your generosity will  make it possible to provide at least one advertised performance from each production this year that will be sign language interpreted.  All participating MC Gives non-profits will receive a prorated share of the match based on their total donations during the campaign. Each group may receive a match on the first $75,000 they have raised; this ensures the overall match fund is shared equitably among all participating non-profits. Since the program began in 2009, Monterey County Gives! has helped local non-profit organizations like ours to raise over $8 million.Even though the McGives campaign has concluded, we will continue to accept support for this project…make donations payable to:

FOREST THEATER GUILD

We are really looking forward to sharing fun filled evenings under the stars with our community again.

Films in the Forest(at the CYC) will run throughout the year, typically on Friday or Saturday nights and at the Outdoor Theater Tuesday thru Saturday except when the plays are in production, at which time they will run Tuesday thru Thursday  Please see our calendar for upcoming show times and ticket information.
