Reasons to Give

Donate Now

Ticket sales cover just 60% of the production expenses and operating costs at STC. It is only because of Member gifts that we are able to bridge the gap and help ensure the future of classical theatre in America.

Whatever your reason, please help us cover the gap by becoming a Shakespeare Star, joining the Artistic Circle or including the theatre in your estate plans through the Society of 1616.

Join the Company! When you join the Shakespeare Stars or Artistic Circle, you enjoy exclusive Member-only benefits such as advance notice of special 25th anniversary events like Classic Conversations with Patrick Stewart, Kevin Kline and James Earl Jones, a subscription to Stages magazine, Member discounts at our gift shops and area restaurants through our Bard Card, invitations to special insider events such as Meet the Cast, Member-only tech rehearsals, opening nights, access to our Patrons Lounge at Sidney Harman Hall and much, much more, depending on your Member level.
