LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Greater Lafayette Civic Theater is asking for the public's help as it struggles through the pandemic.
The theater is one of the many organizations hit hard by the pandemic. Since it cannot hold performances, it's losing money from ticket sales. The organization has received some state grant money, but it's not enough.
So, members had to get creative. They started a virtual variety show called "Natural Distancing".
"Unfortunately that's just where we are right now," said Producing Artistic Director Raquel Lopez. "I can't give you the option to come into this theater yet. So, until that day, we would appreciate the support."
It idea started when the artist, Craig Martin, created a colorful set. Artists and performers were then asked to come and get inspired.
The nearly hour-long show was created through that inspiration.
"It just sort of made sense that we try and do something to support it while in a time where it can't support itself," said Martin.
The show can be rented for $20 per family. You then have access for 48 hours.
The fundraiser ends Oct. 17. Click here for more information.
