Which role do you want to play?

Donors are a very important part of the Playhouse family. Your generous contribution to our annual fund builds sets, purchases props, brings theatre to schools and community centers, and puts extraordinary artists on our stages.

Choose which program you want to support!
Support mainstage productions, new plays, education programs, multigenerational programs, diverse voices, artist training or collaborations, or let us decide for you! And, with our
Matching Gift Program, your company can double — or even triple — your donation.

"Playhouse has always been a special place for my entire family. My mother took me to see The Fantasticks when I was a young girl, and I’ve been hooked ever since. My husband and I have been season subscribers for the past 34 years, and we feel as though Playhouse is simply a part of our lives. My mother supported the Playhouse, and I, too, want to support it for our entire community to enjoy."
