Dear Friend,

Theatre Nohgaku needs your support! We are performers who are creating a new and vibrant theatre company out of our passion for classical noh drama of Japan. Our love of this extraordinary art form compels us to share its beauty and power with English speaking audiences through the creation and production of original English language noh plays—‘shinsaku-noh’ in English.

Why do we need your support? Theatre Nohgaku faces unusual challenges as a performing company. We are spread over two continents and numerous time zones, and each of us must balance company projects with other professional endeavors.

Your support will go to assist us with the following:
•our annual rehearsal weeks, as well as the continuing development of new work
•periodic retreats at the Rogue River Noh Center in Belmont, MI
•our annual workshop series, Writers and Advanced Writers Workshops for playwrights to study the dramaturgy of noh, Music Workshop and (beginning in 2012) Noh Costuming Workshop
•our educational outreach including resident workshops and demonstrations
•the ongoing training of our members

Thank you!
