Statement from Julie Cohen Theobald, Executive Director:

Our thoughts and best wishes are with all those in Texas and Louisiana who are affected by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey and who will continue to be impacted long after the current floodwaters recede.

We know that our fellow members of EdTA, Thespians, and all in the theatre community are standing by to support our colleagues, friends, and peers during this difficult time. Experts recommend that at the present time the greatest need is for cash donations. Here are a few links we’ve found that give a variety of ways in which to donate:

·NY Times: How to Donate and Avoid Scams
·Texas Tribune: Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts
·ABC 13: How to Help Hurricane Harvey Victims

The Texas Thespians have created a page to solicit information from those who NEED support and those wanting to GIVE support. Please click here for more information.

We will continue to assess the specific needs of our members in the days and weeks ahead to ensure that our theatre community is able to rebuild itself.
