As a non-profit, professional theatre, North Carolina Stage Company depends on contributions to support our programs. Contribute online, or see the bottom of this page for ways to contribute in person, by mail, or with stock!
A gift from you can help:
Provide theatre residencies for Western NC students, teaching everything from Shakespeare to the Harlem Renaissance. Studies show that students who participate in the arts do better academically.
Subsidize Pay-What-You-Can Night, when patrons who can't normally afford a theatre ticket can pay as little as $6 to see the show.
Pay for box office and technical support for the Catalyst Series, meaning that dozens of local theatre companies can focus on creating the best possible work.
Your contribution makes a difference, no matter what size it is. Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to help NC Stage continue its mission of providing outstanding professional theatre and arts education.
