Thank you!

POP Global Passport
Thursday, April 14, 2022, 7PM
O’Maine Studios, Portland

Thank you to all who attended POP Global Passport. Your dedicated support as well as the enthusiasm of so many local businesses made POP not only unforgettable but impactful. The performances were incredible, the food delicious and the company exquisite. We never knew how much you all LOVE donuts! Everyone came together to create something truly special at a time when such experiences could not be more valuable. It was a real party we won’t soon forget.

Because of you, we reached our goals. Because of you, more Maine students will delight in performances especially for young audiences and receive complementary books. Because of you, more in our community will experience the power of coming together for live performance. Because of you, Portland is the vibrant and creative community we all love.
