As we are a not-for-profit 501c(3) tax exempt organization, your Sponsorship is tax-deductible.

Please understand that we are not a commercial venture, and that our purpose is to serve our community. We believe that theater provides a center for connection that is especially important in this age of online communication. It is a major priority for us to keep our ticket prices low, so as not to exclude any community members. This means that, like most theaters, we cannot rely on ticket sales alone to fund our productions.

To date, we have had much success in attracting grant funding for the Theater, however, our major benefactor has recently discontinued funding for the arts. This means that we rely more than ever on our community base for support.
