Which role do you want to play?

Donors are a very important part of the Playhouse family. Your generous contribution to the Playhouse’s annual fund builds sets, purchases props, brings theatre to schools and community centers, and puts extraordinary artists on our stages. When you make a gift to the annual fund, you can choose which program you’d like your gift to support. Options include Mainstage Productions, New Plays, Education Programs, Multigenerational Production, Diverse Voices, Artist Training and Collaborations. Select the one that you like best, or let us use your gift for the greatest need!

"Playhouse has always been a special place for my entire family. My mother took me to see The Fantasticks when I was a young girl, and I’ve been hooked ever since. My husband and I have been season subscribers for the past 34 years, and we feel as though Playhouse is simply a part of our lives. My mother supported the Playhouse, and I, too, want to support it for our entire community to enjoy."

Play Team: Take an Exclusive Look Behind the Scenes

Jun 21, 2017

In 1992, Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park introduced the Play Team program, which was designed to give deeper insight into the theatre’s development of its own productions. Play Team members could peek behind the curtain for an exclusive look at the process of taking a story from the script to the stage.


Tribute and Memorial Gifts

Honor or remember a loved one with the gift of theatre. Tribute or memorial gifts support both the extraordinary theatre on our stages and the education programs that touch more than 57,000 young lives each year. You can celebrate a person’s life and milestones in a unique way as you watch your gift come to life on our stages. When you make a contribution in someone’s name, we will send a greeting card to the honoree or a surviving family member notifying them of your donation. We also will acknowledge you and your honoree in our program.

To make a tribute or memorial gift, contact Kendra Struthers at kendra.struthers@cincyplay.com or 513-977-2024, or indicate your intentions when you give online.
