How You Can Help

Make An Impact

As a non-profit organization, ticket sales do not cover the costs of our productions and mission-driven work. Generous donations from people like you help build sets, purchase props, bring top talent to Cincinnati, and bring theatre to kids and community centers across the Tristate.


Help us Build a New Theatre

We're building a new, state-of-the-art Mainstage Theatre Complex, featuring Moe and Jack's Place –  The Rouse Theatre, set to open March 2023. Learn more about this exciting project and how you can get involved today!
