When you give to Writers Theatre, you honor our resolute commitment to excellence and provide us with the support we need to present the thoughtful, high-quality productions and education outreach programming you’ve come to know from us. With our two intimate performance spaces filled to near capacity every night, Writers Theatre is able to cover only 50% of our budget needs through ticket sales. That means we rely on your annual donation to continue captivating audiences, developing new theatrical works, and reaching 10,000 Chicagoland students each year.
Indeed, gifts at every level are vitally important to the future of Writers Theatre, and we are grateful for the commitment of our family of supporters. We could not do it without you!
Writers Theatre Donors ensure the viability all our work throughout the year. Gifts can be made to the area of greatest need, or may be directed to support one of the following three areas:
Writers Theatre is committed to bringing the most talented actors, directors and designers to our stages to create intimate and engaging theatrical experiences for our audiences.
Writers Theatre is committed to extending its mission beyond the stage and into the classroom, providing innovative and academically-rigorous theatre-based education programs to 10,000 Chicago-area students each year.
Writers Theatre is committed to contributing to the Amercian Theatrical Canon through its unique Literary Development Initiative. This initiative provides an artistic home to nurture the playwrights of tomorrow and dedicates time and resources to the development and production of new plays and musicals, crucial second productions of already-premiered works, and the fostering of future productions across the country.
The On to a New Stage Campaign, currently underway, is a $34 million fundraising campaign, including a cash reserve, to establish Writers Theatre's first permanent home. Learn more.
