Be an Anchor for local arts and help us weather any storm!

Thank you to Jeremy Lessnau of StandProv! for the fun video and the support!

Anchor Donors keep our doors open through thick and thin.

And when our doors are open we can host hilarious comedy and improv shows like StandProv!, Drunk Theatre, Martin Amini, La Spazzatura, Will Burkurt, UCSF Improv, Daniel Weingarten, and our newest residency Stand-up Comedy at The Lost Church.

We need some good laughs these days and Anchor Donors are the foundation for our hosting super funny people!

Anchor Donors are…

People who are pitching in to The Lost Church Nonprofit with small monthly or quarterly contributions.

They are the backbone of our organization that keep our theaters open through thick and thin.

$5, $10, $25 really adds up and inches us closer to stability.

Our goal this May is to add 70 new Anchor Donors. Only 60 more to go as of today!

It’s a concrete way you can keep the arts in San Francisco and Santa Rosa alive during these turbulent times.

Be a part of the solution! Thank you.

Ticket Sales Alone Don't Keep Theaters Open...Donors Do

From Your Everlovin’ Editor

Hello friend,

I was just looking back at photos of some really great times at TLC SF and TLC Santa Rosa. It makes me smile to think that (so far) we’ve made it through some tough years. It was iffy at times.

Thanks to you who came to a show or signed up to be an Anchor Donor or told a friend about us this week. You’re awesome!

We’re happy to be a small piece of the pie that we all know and love as our local Bay Area and North Bay arts community.

It’s been 12 years and it feels like we’re just getting started on what we can grow together. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Summer On The Square Returns to Santa Rosa

June & July 2023

Summer on the Square in Santa Rosa 2023

The Lost Church is excited to share that we have co-produced this year’s Summer on the Square Series.

Not only that, but we’re running the bar!

This means that when you join us at one of these fun summertime concerts or movies you not only get to say hello to the TLC Staffer who is pouring your drink, but every purchase you make goes directly to support our theater and nonprofit!

Since the concerts end at 8pm you can make an evening of it and come to our Downtown Santa Rosa Theater to keep having fun and feeding your senses afterward.

Music on the Square will bring live music and dancing to Downtown Courthouse Square on seven Fridays throughout the summer. The Lost Church, a nonprofit arts organization with a Downtown performance space, is helping coordinate the scheduling of local performers who bring a diversity of styles.

Movies on the Square are back this year and better than ever. Four Monday night screenings on a massive LED screen will light up Courthouse Square in Downtown Santa Rosa.

Learn more at the Santa Rosa Metro Chamber Website.
