Miami New Drama is the first professional theater in Florida and one of only a handful around the nation to be approved for a live theater production with the professional performer's union. This is huge news! AND a huge undertaking! The show SEVEN DEADLY SINS will perform in Lincoln Rd Storefronts from Nov 27-Jan 3 and is designed specifically as a response to the COVID-19 shutdown of live performing arts. https://www.miaminewdrama.org/7deadlysins
The pandemic has greatly affected our revenue, but we are committed to bringing live theatre experiences back to our community in safe and creative ways. Theater is by nature resilient. For almost three millennia, it has existed in many forms morphing and being reinvented hundreds of times. It is now on us, the theater artists of the twenty-first century to reinvent it once more.
We are also focused on providing outstanding educational services through free online MasterMiND master classes in English and Spanish (archived on our YouTube channel) and expanding our youth programs through virtual in-school programming with MasterMiND Youth classes including a STEAM component. We will be launching our first after-school program in the Spring and a Summer Camp series focusing on developing young artists' voices in line with our mission to use theater as a form of social engagement.
Our new play commissions have not stopped. We are continuing to look to the future and currently have dozens of projects in different stages of development to premiere when the Colony Theatre can open in full force again.
YOUR support in meeting our $125,000 goal helps us succeed in these new endeavors.
