Fundraising for Theatre Blues

So, you want to make some theatre, but you need money to do it.  So where does this money come from?

Let’s say that you’re in Canada, and you’ve applied for CAC grants, but you haven’t gotten them.  You’ve held some fundraising events, but you haven’t come close to what you need.  What do you do?  How do you raise the funds to actually put up the show?

Kris Joseph wrote an excellent blog post on using IndieGoGo as a fundraising source (which you can read here), but I don’t think that one should bank on a pitch on a fundraising site like this to generate a ton of cash (sure it might be possible, but it shouldn’t be your only source of revenue).

How do you raise funds for theatre projects?  What has worked for you in the past?
