As a non-profit, more than 30% of TheatreWorks' annual operating budget comes from donor contributions. When you donate to the TheatreWorks, you help sustain a tradition of support for the arts in Western Connecticut – and your donation is tax-deductible. From lights to set pieces to instructors and infrastructure, your dollars make the work you see on our stage possible. If you are already a donor, thank you!
