Our next start line

ENDURE has moved audiences (literally!) since we created it in 2011.

This year is the 10th anniversary of the show’s birth.

It feels amazing to be able to share it in New York’s big backyard—and to begin developing the next chapter of Run Woman Show.

We are so close to having our budget fully funded.

A generous grant from the Canada Council for the Arts, plus our box office projections get us 90% of the way there.

We need your help to get across the finish line with that last 10%!

Melanie Jones (writer) and Suchan Vodoor (director) are excited to be creating together again and have big plans for the show’s future. This summer is the essential and exciting first page of Run Woman Show’s new chapter:

~ More storylines

~ More artists

~ A commitment to creating equitable work environments for our team

You are making this show happen for us and for the audiences in NYC craving live theatre.

You are contributing to a show that was born for weird pandemic times.

You are supporting a work environment that offers childcare reimbursement, fair pay, and five-day workweeks to artists. While keeping ticket prices accessible.

We only have $10,000 to raise!

We are proud to be creating equity for parent-artists at our scale of production. We need your help to get our budget balanced and build the foundation of what theatre should be for artists!

We’ve got some fun perks including show tickets for NYC this summer, mp3s of ENDURE’s awesome audio, fun retro sweatbands, iPods used in the show with curated content from our team, sneak peeks at the new show in development, and more.

If cash is tight, there are other ways to support us:

~ Get the word out about the show and tickets

~ Share our fundraising campaign!

We are so ready to start this exciting new chapter. And we couldn’t do any of it without you.
