ACT ONE HONORING ENSEMBLE’S SUPPORTERS

All Santa Barbara agrees: The New Vic is stunning! Incredibly generous individuals, foundations, and businesses have contributed over $12.6 million to create the New Vic. Ensemble has now completed two full seasons of richly entertaining work. In the versatile and technologically advanced New Vic, Ensemble has spread its artistic wings, offering productions unprecedented in their range, ambition, and creativity. And the New Vic provides an intimate, warm, affordable, contemporary venue for a rich variety of other performing arts—dance, choral music, symphony, quartet, speaking, and film. Our impact is remarkable. Last season, over 21,000 patrons and students attended Ensemble productions, some students experiencing live theater for the very first time.

ACT TWO Through the incredible vision and generosity of Leatrice Luria and the Luria Family, and with support of the City’s Redevelopment Agency, Ensemble will soon have permanent, debt-free ownership of the New Vic — an incredible milestone that sets the stage for …

ACT THREE Now we must complete the Endowment component of our campaign. For Ensemble, as for every performing arts organization, an endowment is essential to guarantee the long-term stability and prosperity of Ensemble. Endowment earnings will keep admission prices affordable, ensure maintenance of the New Vic, subsidize young audience programs, expand educational outreach, and help assure Ensemble’s long-term financial strength. It will be transformative.

YOUR ROLE ON STAGE Please help us complete our endowment. • Make a new gift, or a pledge to be paid over one to five years • Extend your earlier commitment to the New Vic campaign for additional years • Contribute real estate, securities or other personal property • Create a gift fund (for example, a charitable remainder trust) that will provide an income to the donor and/or beneficiary with an ultimate residuary Endowment gift

The New Vic’s lobby features a beautiful Patron Wall — a permanent acknowledgment and celebration of those who have played a major role in the theater’s success. Ensemble will acknowledge all donors in select Ensemble publications and in our annual report, except for donors who prefer to give anonymously.
