One Purpose. One Passion. Theatre!
Who We Are
Blue Fire Theatre creates life out – loud theatrical experiences.
We connect with our community through stories that make us
think, feel, laugh, love and become inspired.
Blue Fire benefiting our community through theatre.
We hope everyone is hanging in there and safely getting back to our big wonderful world.
We have made a decision about our June 29th Broadway & Brew. Our decision is to postpone until they announce Phase 3.
We will then check in with our performers to secure a new date.
We have had some folks ask if we could have it outside. We did have a fun mini - Broadway & Brew outside May 30th, but we found it to be really hot for the performers and the audience. Also, now that SJ Brewing Company can seat at 50% capacity and
they are not required to be open only when Olive Cove is open, we cannot have it outside. It must be indoors.
Should you prefer not to or cannot wait for the new date to be announced, we have several options for you to choose from regarding the tickets you have purchased for June 29th.
1. Current tickets will be honored at the next Broadway & Brew.
2. If you cannot attend the new date when announced we would love it, if you might consider your purchase a donation.
All donations are tax deductible.
3. You can keep your tickets as a credit for a future show.
4. We would also be happy to refund your purchase.
You can let us know now what you would like to do by replying to the e-mail you should have received if you have purchased tickets or we can check in with you or you can check in with us once we have settled on a new date.
For those of you who have been donating to Not For Profit arts organizations or any
Not for Profit during this unsettling time...
We thought it might be helpful for you to know the following information from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and
Economic Security Act (CARES Act). Charitable Giving Incentive: Includes a new above-the-line deduction
(universal or non-itemizer deduction that applies to all taxpayers) for total charitable contributions of up to $300.
The incentive applies to contributions made in 2020 and would be claimed on tax forms next year. Section 2204.
The bill also lifts the existing cap on annual contributions for those who itemize, raising it from 60 percent of adjusted
gross income to 100 percent. For corporations, the bill raises the annual limit from 10 percent to 25 percent.
Food donations from corporations would be available to 25 percent, up from the current 15 percent cap.
If you think you would like to get credit next year on your taxes for a donation of money, services or products.
Please check, that the organization you are donating to meets the requirements and ask for a receipt for your donation.
FSCJ Artist Series Broadway in Jacksonville engagement of HAMILTON has been rescheduled and will now play the
Times Union Center August 31 – September 12, 2021. If you missed out on our fundraiser, never fear we will kick start the campaign again next spring / summer.
As with many theatres throughout our area and the world including our beloved Broadway, we must put our schedule on hold.
We thought about all the alternative ways we could continue but above all all else, we value the health and safety of our patrons
and volunteers. With the uncertainty of the situation, we decided to wait until we are on the other side of this health crisis and then we will make our decision on how to move forward.
As soon as we have new dates for our shows and auditions we will announce them here and on all of our social media outlets.
As a brand new organization in the community we cannot thank you enough for the love and support you have already shown
Blue Fire Theatre.
We want to be very clear;
WE WILL BE BACK! :) :)
BECAUSE WE WERE ONLY GETTING STARTED!
Right now, we must put safety first for you and our amazing volunteers.
We look forward to seeing all of you very soon!
Stay strong, and healthy and...keep washing your hands, practicing social distancing and wearing those masks!!!
