Support Us

As a nonprofit, community theater run by 100% unpaid volunteers, we really appreciate your donations. Your "play" money funds real events from which the entire community can benefit... and since we're a true nonprofit, your donation is 100% tax-deductible.*

To donate online, simply click the button below. We'll be sure to recognize you in our programs, on our website—and every time we set foot in the theater. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Or if you have goods in good shape that you'd like to donate (costumes, properties, paint brushes/rollers), please email us .




*To the extent allowed by the law. Check with your tax consultant for more information.
