A Letter from Our Artistic Director: Looking Ahead

Posted On: February 4, 2016

LOOKING AHEAD step up productions

Dear Supporters, Donors, and Fans of Step Up Productions,

Step Up Productions is in its fourth year.  It has been an amazing, inspiring and challenging ride, and I would not change a thing.

Here we are, 9 productions, 3 Jeff recommendations and 1 Jeff nomination later reviewing where we have been and where we want the company to go. What I know for sure is that Step Up has brought incredible talent, productions, and stories to the stage. We are committed to bringing more awareness into the world through the Arts. Our mission is to continually inspire and challenge the stories we each tell ourselves, and grow beyond that.

Sometimes part of the story is hitting the pause button. We have both grown in size and reach, and with this, recognized our need for a more sustainable financial model. We pride ourselves on the quality of our productions and are proud to pay our staff while also giving back to charities.

As Step Up moves into the “in betweens,” we have made the decision to cancel our next production, Private Lives. We are going to be taking this time to review our financial model, explore how to grow funds to meet our expanding budget and create a more sustainable financial model.

Thank you for your generous support, love, laughter, and commitment. You the audience are why we love what we do!

With deep appreciation,

Elizabeth Antonucci
