Friends of Theatre

The Department of Theatre Arts celebrates 50 Years in 2020! 

Amidst the reality of the last few months, particularly recent events around the nation, it is now our time—our responsibility—to evaluate how the Department of Theatre Arts will participate and respond while providing valuable educational experiences for our students. 

You too can be a part of this vital effort. Your contribution applies directly to the opportunities we can provide our students. Your support facilitates:

  • our programming and productions, 
  • our ability to engage with guest artists, 
  • our ongoing commitment to anti-racism, and 
  • the building of a truly diverse and inclusive community.

Join us and become a Friend of Theatre in our 50th Year. 

Select your level of support & benefits below. Or, if you would like to discuss creative ways that you can sustain the future of Theatre—such as a larger gift of cash or a multi-year pledge—please contact a member of our Development team here.
