Donations: More Than What You See

It takes a lot to tell the story of a person’s life. For some, years go by before a story is ready to be told. When ready, a Playwright hands their story off to producers and directors. Then actors are casts to “live” the story on stage. Builders and lighting technicians create the space. And finally, you participate by attending the performance. Each scene is crafted by so many, including you.

By purchasing a season pass or a single ticket you played a role in art on stage. When you make a gift, you make an impact on the future of art access. 50% of our total costs of operating the theatre are covered by ticket sales. The other 50% comes from donors like you making a generous financial effort.

The future of theatrical art in South Jersey is in your hands. Consider making a $10 monthly gift to the theatre starting today. As a Sustainer, you allow Eagle Theatre to make bold choices all year long. From dynamic programming to top-notch casting, your contribution impacts and inspires.

Unique, memorable experiences are what you can count on with every monthly gift. Make yours today.

About Jack Shaw:

Jack Kenneth Shaw, II, 62, of Haddonfield, passed on May 4, 2015. Born July 9, 1952 in Pasadena, CA. Beloved husband of Amy Keys Shaw, father of Aidan and Allie Shaw, and stepfather of Zach Naegele. Also survived by his sisters Beverly Hunt (Gene) of Yuma, AZ and Peggy Shaw, of Bradenton, FL. Jack was a graduate of Benton High School in St. Joseph, MO, Missouri Western University and the University of Missouri at Columbia, from which he earned two Masters’ degrees. He was a veteran of the Marines, during the Vietnam War, and the Air Force, as a public affairs officer and professor at the United States Air Force Academy.

He was retired from the US Department of Health and Human Services. In his retirement, he pursued his passions of writing, teaching and theater. He wrote several books, taught speech and English at several local colleges, and was a theater critic and active member and of the South Jersey theater community. He also loved to travel with his family, particularly to the Caribbean, where he dreamed of ultimately retiring.

One of his wishes was for this fund to be created and for the Eagle Theatre to assist in the management of the fund.
