Hopeful Theatre Project – 2020

Dear Sister,
The Hopeful Theatre project began as a dream in the fall of 2018. We opened our first showcase, “Two Acts of Love”, February 16, 2019 to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities. We were overwhelmed by the amount of support that we had to continue making this dream a reality. The Hopeful Theatre Project is now a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in the state of Texas founded on April 11, 2019. We have now produced 3 productions, raising over $7000 for local chapters of charities we believe in.
The Hopeful Theatre Project’s goal is to bring love, hope, and aid to the community by utilizing local talent through the performing arts to benefit various charity organizations. This February, we are presenting our third showcase “That Thing Called Love,” once again benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities. The showcase will be February 7th-9th at Theatre of North Texas.

The Hopeful Theatre Project is looking for some incredible individuals and organizations to join our team. A donation of any amount will help us with the upfront production costs required to make this event happen.

In addition to our sponsorship packages, we are looking for
supporters who are willing to donate items that are needed for our
production such as construction materials, meals for our cast, and
printing services. We can also accept donations of any amount, or
customize any of our sponsorship packages. Every dollar of ticket
sales for any Hopeful production goes directly to the charity we are
supporting; that is why we depend so heavily on sponsorships and
donations. We would love for you to become a part of the Hopeful
If you would like to join us in our mission and/or have any questions,
please send me an email at sponsors@thehopefultheatreproject.com. I
would love to chat with you more about who we are, what we do, and
how you can help us make a difference.
With Love,
Jessica Cope (Alpha Class ’12)
President / Producer
The Hopeful Theatre Project

About The Hopeful Theatre Project 
The Hopeful Theatre Project’s goal is to bring love, hope, and aid to the community by utilizing local talent through the performing arts to benefit various charity organizations.
The Hopeful Theatre Project is a non-profit corporation in the state of Texas founded on April 11, 2019. Our first showcase, Two Acts of Love, performed on February 16, 2019 to benefit The Ronald McDonald House Charities was a huge success! We raised over $1,000 over our anticipated goal and provided over-night stays near hospitals to hundreds of families here in the DFW metroplex. After the success of our first event, we decided to establish ourselves as an official theatre company and continue to spread hope to the community.
