To the CRT Audience,

These are just a few of the lyrics that ring out every night over the audience as I perform with the Chicago company of the Pulitzer Prize winning-show Hamilton: An American Musical. Words that make me think about the blessings I have been gifted as a young theatre artist. Where I am today is all because I started at Connecticut Repertory Theatre.

You have no idea the magnitude of what you gave me both as a performer and MFA Acting graduate student in my three years in Storrs at CRT. The support I received from you was essential to my growth as an artist.

This summer I was blessed with the opportunity to return to CRT and perform in Peter and the Starcatcher. This incredible cast brought together UConn faculty, current students, alumni and incredible professionals. Your smiles, laughter, and applause were that special “star stuff” we needed to make the show a success!

Trust me, you are in “the room where it happens!” There are amazing artists on stage every night at Connecticut Repertory Theatre—Tony Award winners and nominees, future stars are all there, performing for you! Please support CRT and the tremendous opportunities it provides for artistic exploration and development. 

I invite you to make your donation to the Patron Fund. These donations are used to support CRT productions and to provide the highest quality theater experience for you and an amazing learning environment for our young artists.

Don’t throw away your shot at making a difference. Please support CRT with your charitable tax-deductible contribution. Thank you for your continued support!

Most Sincerely,

Colby Lewis
MFA Acting ’14 , CRT Guest Artist – Peter and the Starcatcher
Swing/George Washington – Hamilton: An American Musical
