JUMP TO: Santa Rosa / San Francisco
The Lost Church is the fiscal sponsor for Kat Robichaud’s Misfit Cabaret. Help us support more wildly creative artists in this way.
We couldn’t offer Fiscal Sponsorships without our Anchor Donors.
Thank you to Kat Robichaud for the kind words and support!
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.
Every performer was new at some point!
We can’t wait to share the exciting artists of the future with you.
A small monthly donation of only the price of a coffee has a HUGE impact!

From Your Everlovin’ Editor
Hey there! Hi there!
We have a jumpin’ week ahead and it wouldn’t be the same without you!
We’re in Week 2 of our Annual Anchor Drive and I’m amazed at how we as a collective with small resources can chip in just a little amount and yield mighty BIG results.
It does my heart good to know that me and you and our neighbors and friends can truly make a difference in our community now and for years to come with just $5 or $10 a month.
A little love goes a long way.
Sending some your way right now…

Summer On The Square Returns to Santa Rosa
June & July 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.
