Support theatre education experiences for all.

 UPDATE: we’ve met & surpassed our goal of $25,000! Thank you for your ongoing support – let’s keep that momentum going!

Here at Commonwealth Theatre Center, we work hard everyday to ensure that you – our extended family – have access to the regionally- and nationally-recognized arts programming we’re known for. While the ongoing COVID-19 crisis may have postponed our productions and disrupted our programming, it is because of loyal supporters like you that we will continue paving a path forward to cultivate the next generation of empowered, creative problem-solvers.

The CTC family has made it our top priority to develop engaging virtual content and find new ways to keep our students connected to our work. To make that happen, it takes more than a community. It takes a village.

Your gift to Commonwealth Theatre Center will support…
  • Accessible, nationally recognized arts programming for all.
  • Our talented staff, teachers, and contract artists. They, along with our students, are at the heart of what we do.
  • Innovative and engaging virtual content creation.
  • Maintenance of our home at 1123 Payne Street.
  • Purchasing new equipment, software, and subscriptions necessary for us to adapt to this new “normal”.
  • Keeping our CTC family safe & healthy as we begin to phase back into in-person theatre experiences.
We realize that for many of us, times are tougher than they’ve been in a long time. Whether you have the capacity to give $5 or $500, we need your support now more than ever. We’ve weathered storms for over 40 years – with your help, we’ll weather the next 40 together!
