1st Fund

The magic of theater doesn't just happen. Your contribution to 1st Fund (our Annual Fund) will help us to bring the best theatre to you. This fund provides for such things as costumes, sets, royalty fees, playbills, advertising, and more. These costs can be staggering; it costs $96,000 to produce an entire season and approximately $18,000 to produce each show. We need your help.

    . Theatre by the Square Foot

For as little as $20, you can fund a square foot of our theatre (that covers our rent, insurance, taxes, and landlord fees for one year) and lay claim to this place and the art that is produced here. Multiply $20 x 6,750 square feet (our total space) and you’ll see how much it costs to keep this place running. Buy a square foot, a square yard or even more! Every dollar counts.
