The NoHo Arts District, home of numerous independent theatres, is hard-hit by closures due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Patrons who would like to keep their favorite venues afloat can contribute to the Save NoHo Theatres Go Fund Me page.
Your donations will provide a lifeline to theatres that have staged some excellent horror-themed plays, such as:
- ACME Theatre: The Zombie Effect
- Actors Workout Studio: Fallen Saints: Salem
- The Group Rep: Night of the Living Dead
- Loft Ensemble: Dracula: Blood Before Dawn
- Secret Rose Theatre: Spindle City: The Lizzie Borden Musical
- Theatre 68: Dracula
- Zombie Joe’s Underground Theatre Group: Urban Death: Tour of Terror
The fundraiser, which has a target goal of $108,194, states in part:
WE’RE NOT BEING DRAMATIC BUT…
Eighteen of the 22 live, professional theatres in the NoHo Arts District will close within two months because of Covid19. It will not only harm the theatres but the NoHo Arts District as a whole. To avoid closure of 18 theatres in Los Angeles’ performing arts district, www.nohoartsdistrict.com has created a “Save NoHo Theatres from COVID19” Go Fund Me campaign to help pay for 60 days of 18 theatres’ rent. The NoHo Arts District is just one-square mile and it has the second largest concentration of theatres in the United States.
All the NoHo theatres survive month to month in order to create their shows because they’re not government supported and cannot sustain even a short-term shut down. Without shows, classes, rentals and ticket sales theatres can’t survive. This has an effect on the entire community because without the theatre patrons, actors and crew, restaurants, bars, apartments and other local businesses lose revenue. Without NoHo theatres, there will be no NoHo Arts District.
