Dear Friend of M.O.C.,
The Montclair Operetta Club is blessed with many friends like you.
We look forward to seeing you at the theatre for each production,
and we hope you enjoy visiting with us as much as we enjoy welcoming
you to our “house.”
For nearly ninety years, M.O.C. has been a fixture on the local arts
scene. We hope it has been a fixture on your calendar as well.
There was always another show in the works, new actors gracing our
stage and new friends coming to the box office.
How would you feel if a friend like M.O.C. disappeared? Fall
arrived, and there was no email from the Club announcing its
upcoming production. You experienced none of the pleasant
anticipation, waiting for another evening or matinee filled with
music. You would have no chance to venture to the Westminster Arts
Center to see some of your favorite actors, or meet new ones.
Sadly, we are facing the real possibility that your friend M.O.C.
might disappear. With the economy still fragile, support for the
arts is spread as thin as it ever has been. We strive to provide
you with the finest entertainment while still keeping ticket prices
affordable. This means that ticket receipts alone cannot sustain
the production of a musical. Donations from our friends are vital
to support not only the show itself, but also the “behind the
scenes” expenses like heating oil and electricity that are so
necessary for rehearsals and scenery construction.
You can help by making a donation, no matter the size, to launch
M.O.C. into its 90th season. How many nonagenarians do you know?
Won’t you please help the grand dame of community theatre stride
forward into her tenth decade?
