In July of 2020, we were hit with devastating water damage from a broken pipe between our first and second floors. We have spent the last seven months making repairs and restoration to our theater. Our insurance was good, but we were unable to stage any shows, meaning we had no income. Our bills — mortgage. utilities, insurance, etc, go on regardless. COVID-19 was a game changer, our theater, like community theaters across the country, depended on loyal patrons for donations.
If you’d like to DONATE, CLICK HERE to donate by credit card through our ticketing agent, Ticketor. To donate by check, please send a check, made payable to Tater Patch Players to Tater Patch Players, PO Box 267, Jasper, GA. 30143. Your support is both very welcome, and vital to our “staying afloat” till we can get back to putting on shows for you.

Rewards for becoming
a Tater Patch supporter
and a member
No theater or arts group in the country can pay for its productions by ticket sales alone. Naturally, your ticket purchases help us and entertain you. We are proud that our casts, crews and front of house staff are all volunteers, and we generally finance show expenses from ticket revenues. However, paying the mortgage and other necessary costs requires more than talent and loyal audiences. Yes, our bankers, insurers, and others with whom we do business want to be paid in cash. To bridge this gap we need donors, advertisers, and sponsors. If you’d like to donate, we are a 501(c)3 organization and, as such, all monetary donations are deductible to the extent allowed by law. Consult your tax professional. Donations can be made by check, payable to Tater Patch Players, PO Box 267, Jasper, GA 30143.
If you’d like to donate by credit card, you may do so through Ticketor, our ticketing service (click HERE) or at our box office during productions. (To visit with one of our representatives about your donation, you may call us at 706-253-2800 and we will arrange a meeting at your convenience.) Donations of any size are welcome.
Please get in touch with us at email@example.com
If you have interest in this or have any questions, we’ll be glad to reach out to you by phone or email.
Thank you for your donation!
