Marquee's commitment to out community is ongoing. We hold annual fundraisers with money raised used to subsidize children from local associations (Children's Aid Society, Foster Parents, Girls Inc. Yellow Brick House etc.) to attend our educational programs. the funds are also used to offset increases in fees due to raising costs to run the programs (Royalties and theatre rentals and studio building rent).
Marquee participates in York Region community "spirit" events, such as Christmas Parades, Movies in the Park, Halloween Haunted Forest, Street Festivals, and special events.
In addition to this and in an effort to help other worthwhile organizations, Marquee has assisted local causes through proceeds of various productions. Donations to local charities: $40,000.00!
