Touching Lives Through Theatre... Together™
When you do well in business, you ought to do some good. At least that’s how we see things at Pioneer Drama Service, where we have a multi-faceted approach to giving back to our community and beyond.
Giving back to the community is ingrained in our company culture at Pioneer Drama Service. Over three-quarters of our employees generously donate to the United Way through a payroll deduction program — which Pioneer matches dollar for dollar with contributions to the school readiness and youth success programs of the United Way.
But we don’t stop there. With our Sharing Through Theatre™ Royalty Donation Program, we make it easy for our playwrights to support important causes — from the international programs of UNICEF and Habitat for Humanity to the national programs of Scholarship for America and the American Red Cross. Over 50 of our playwrights and composers donate a portion of their royalties. And Pioneer Drama again matches each donation — dollar for dollar.
Closer to home, keeping drama programs strong in the schools is of paramount importance to Pioneer. Since 2010, we have given away materials and royalties worth over $25,000 to middle and high school theatre programs across the United States through The Show Must Go On™ video contest and our Touching Lives Through Theatre™ grants. While we are sorry to say that we are not sponsoring either for 2014, we continue
to focus our energy on supporting the arts in schools — improving our quality, increasing our accessibility and keeping our prices among the lowest in the industry — so more children than ever can experience the joy and life-altering experience of watching and participating in live theatre.
Touching Lives Through Theatre... Together™. More than a slogan, it’s our mission.
