WHY DONATE TO LAFA? 


For the over 20 years, LAFA has played a unique and important role within the Windsor Essex County community by creating, producing plays for young artists.  We focus on producing work to give children the opportunity to grow through the arts.


LAFA produces 9 shows a year and provides workshops to the community in a school setting allowing students peers to be involved in the experience. 


Our teachers are ALL accredited in their field of expertise and strive to inspire students for greater things. 

As a not-for profit theatre, we rely on the generosity in providing sponsorships and private donations, without which we wouldn’t exist. The patrons of LAFA have told us that affordable ticket prices are deeply important to them, and for the past 20 years we have worked very hard to maintain the most reasonable prices in town.  As a result our ticket sales and classes only account for approximately 70% of our budget. 


If LAFA is important to you, please donate to guarantee our ability to support young artists and provide extraordinary live theatre to our city! Your gift is greatly appreciated.

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO? 


Your donations go towards much of what allows us to share amazing stories through live theatre, including: 


  • Rebuilding of new bathrooms, dressing rooms
  • Adding important lighting, sound and curtains to the theatre
  •  The production of 9 shows per season some of them are World Premieres. From costumes to lighting, your generosity allows us to create extraordinary shows.
  • The ability for us to provide a place where many talented new artists (over 400 per season) get their start, as well as a home for other arts and cultural groups in the city.     


By choosing to support LAFA you are choosing to support the arts in our youth!
