We Need You!

Each year we bring in professional guest artists from around the country.  Costumes for over 150 dancers, props, and scenery make the Nutcracker a very expensive production.  As a non-profit organization, Intercity would be unable to meet the substantial costs of a production as large as The Nutcracker without the help of private donors and our area businesses.

We would like to extend to all members of our community an opportunity to become a supporter of the Arts and Intercity Ballet Theatre, either by becoming a Philanthropist or Patron, or by Advertising in our Nutcracker Program (brochure).    To continue to bring excellence in the art of dance to our region, we must depend on the support of corporations, small businesses, and private citizens.  We cordially invite you to join with us in our endeavor to sustain the Arts in Northeast Tennessee.

Community Outreach

Through your support, area school children and physically and/or financially  challenged adults have been able to attend our performances at little or no charge.  This will be our thirty-fifth year of performing The Nutcracker.  We need your help to bring this time-honored and beloved ballet to life.  It is through the support of our Philanthropists and our Patron ticket sales that we are able to offer day performances for area school children.  Last year, Inter-City was able to provide over four thousand patron tickets and some busing for transportation for deserving students and adults to attend.  With the financial assistance of individuals, such as yourself, we hope to expand our ability to serve the children and challenged of our community even more.  We need your help!! 

Philanthropists

As a nonprofit organization, your donations are tax deductible.  Yearly donations of $2,500 or more will entitle you or your business to the privileges of being an Intercity Ballet Theater Associate Member and Philanthropist.  You and five guests will receive free preferred seating at all Intercity performances during the year.  Your name will have a prominent place on the front cover of our performance programs, flyers and advertisements for the year and you will also be invited to attend Company Receptions after the performances.  While there, you will have the opportunity to meet guest artists and company performers.  Your name also appear as an Intercity Philanthropist in all Intercity Programs and on our web site on the Philanthropists page.   To become an Intercity Ballet Theatre Philanthropist, contact our Artistic Director, Dorothy Ratcliff at (423) 246-2199.

Patrons

Patron/scholarship ticket sales enable us to continue our school outreach program of day performances, as well as support area dancers who could not otherwise afford to participate in the company productions.  Your contribution of $50 will help bring 25 people to the theater to experience the Arts.  In return, you will receive two tickets in the reserved section in the front of the theater for the public performance of your choice. Your name will also be listed in the program.  So, won’t you please take a moment to help us help others enjoy the Arts by clicking on and completing the patron form?
