The Red Poppy Performance Philosophy:
Part of the Red Poppy’s goal is to give greater value to the arts. After all, arts and culture are what has given San Francisco its unique character. With this in mind, we strive to support the local arts community by treating our performers fairly. We encourage our guests to join us in participating in the spirit of this endeavor.
Door admissions from our shows are always split with our performing artists. The majority of this amount goes directly to the performers, while a small percentage goes to directly to supporting the overall operating costs of the Red Poppy and mainly, our rent! We offer this arrangement knowing that the revenue is not nearly sufficient to cover our own overhead and staff stipends (for which we seek support through individual donations, grants and other fundraising initiatives) but believing in the importance of supporting artists as well as the arts. For specific information about rates and admissions please contact Lyz Luke, Director of Performance Programming, at email@example.com
We invite our guests to consider their contribution at performances not as a payment to get into the show but as a direct “audience grant” supporting the arts economy of San Francisco. We ask that they consider the value of a two-hour experience of the arts ($10 – $20 for a ticket) as compared to other valued experiences.
We are a small place, a beautifully small place, in fact, our back row is closer than the front row of most performing arts centers. This intimacy allows for an immersive musical experience unlike any other.
