Dear Sauk Theatre Family,

It is hard to believe that another season is almost over at The Sauk. We have had such fun welcoming people back home this year. We are extremely optimistic that the COVID situation will continue to improve and we will be able to celebrate a return to regular season scheduling in 2022. 

The generosity of our theatre family - donors, sponsors, patrons, volunteers - has been overwhelming in the past 18 months. We have been able to survive because of you. Smaller productions and capacity limits have meant smaller profits while expenses have remained the same. We come to you today asking for a financial donation. Any contribution, large or small, is appreciated and will help us maintain our financial health into the new year. Please complete the attached form. Donations are accepted with cash, check or using a credit/debit card. All donations are tax-deductible. 

You may realize this letter is coming to you a month earlier than most years. This is because we are excited to announce that 2022 season tickets are now available. The season has something for everyone. Our season includes a return to two summer musicals, a world premiere drama in September and the long-awaited Tony N’ Tina’s Wedding. The complete list of shows is on the back of this letter. Individual tickets go on sale Wednesday, December 1, 2021 at www.thesauk.org!  

The arts are more important now than ever. Thank you for helping us meet our mission to “enrich our community through shared theatrical experiences that inspire, nurture, challenge and educate artists and audiences.” We look forward to seeing you at The Sauk!

Theatrically yours, 
Trinity L. Bird
Executive Director
