“Be great in act, as you have been in thought”

-William Shakespeare

The Actors’ Theatre is proud to present plays by William Shakespeare and other time-honored playwrights. While it costs the company $10.24 per audience member at each performance, we want to share classic outdoor theatre with everyone regardless of income and hence offer all shows based on “Pay What You Will.” Please consider making a donation today to support quality theatre for everyone in our vibrant community. If you are among the thousands who have enjoyed Actors’ Theatre, but have yet to make a donation this year, now is an excellent opportunity.

Actors’ Theatre is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and all contributions are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
