Last season was a year when some might have expected us to falter and be permanently injured. But with your help, we showed them! And I do mean “we” because we didn’t do this alone. We’ve
had people like you by our side with your support.

We were successful last year by having a 52% audience increase, critical praise, having new partnerships and donors, and through our individual giving campaign goal to raise $50,000 we were able to raise $52,299. Whoo-hooo!!!!! “How do you like us now?!!!”

This year we are going back to our normal four production season and we find ourselves having to produce outside our venue for the 2017–18 Season with amazing productions: A Midsummer Night’s Dream; Cinderella; A Streetcar Named Desire; and Richard III. We want you to be there with us again…in the audience and with a donation to support our season. We know that you value what we bring to the community.

And we need you to stand with us once again. That is why it is important we ask you, someone who believes in what we do, and who knows what we can do to help bridge this gap. You’ve seen us grow and thrive and here is what you can do to help us continue to move forward:

  1. Come to our performances—be a subscriber
    Take that leap and join us for the season. If you attended A Midsummer Night’s Dream, we’ll take the ticket value amount as part of your season subscription. So if you paid $30, you only need to pay $50 to receive one subscription ($20 per show). Call us at 415.762.2071 ext. 6
  2. We want you to be an ongoing supporter giving a recurring donation for the year.
    A suggested average monthly donation amount would be $40/month. But there is no amount too little or too great—so give at a level and in a way that is comfortable for you.

Your contribution will assist in the expenses of being at the Herbst, Marines’ Memorial, and Taube Atrium for our 2017–18 Season.

I’m really looking forward to this year. I know with your help we can do this again!
