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.

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.

Anchor Donor and long time instigator of fun, Mark Barbeau, sports his 2022 Anchor Pin. The ship has sailed for the 2021 and 2022 Anchor Pins, but you can start your own collection with our 2023 edition by signing up before May 31st.

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

From Your Everlovin’ Editor


As I sit here contemplating the dwindling hours of The Lost Church Anchor Drive, I can’t help but feel a mixture of excitement and anticipation. The clock is ticking, and with less than 48 hours left to become an Anchor Donor, the stakes have never been higher. But fear not, dear readers, for this is not a tale of despair; it is a call to arms, a rallying cry for those who believe in the power of art and community.

I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the 16 individuals who have already answered this call, who have recognized the importance of preserving and expanding our beloved home for performers, educators, and the community at large. Your generosity knows no bounds, and you are the true heroes of this story. Together, we are forging a path to save the soul of Bay Area and North Bay arts.

With the summer breeze whispering promises of June and the warm days ahead I implore you to mark your calendars with show dates that bear the initials of TLC. Join us as we embark on a journey through the summer season, celebrating the arts and reveling in the magic that unfolds within our humble theaters. Let us gather in the spirit of unity, as we indulge in the stories and melodies that transport us to another realm.

May 31st and the end of our Annual Anchor Drive looms just around the corner. By becoming an Anchor Donor, not only will you secure your place as a guardian of The Lost Church, but you will also receive your very own limited edition Anchor Pin—a symbol of your unwavering support and commitment.

We will not give up and are standing strong bound by our shared love for live performance and our unwavering determination to preserve a sanctuary that nurtures creativity. The Lost Church is a haven, a place where dreams come to life and where the beauty of human expression finds its voice.

Thank you for your unwavering support. Your contributions, both big and small, make a world of difference. May the summer sun shine upon us, and may the spirit of community, generosity, and art guide us on this remarkable journey.

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.
