Diverse cultural experiences, local & national performers, a vibrant community — It all happens here and it’s all because of you.
Since re-opening in 2004 after a five-year, community-led renovation, the Englert Theatre has become one of the region’s premier venues for live music, theater, comedy, readings & lectures, film, dance and community events. As a non-profit theater, ticket sales and other earned income cover only a portion of our costs, and we need the help of community members like you to continue to cover the daily operational costs of running the theater. Donations to the Englert help support several aspects of operations including but not limited to outreach projects in our community, programming costs for artist performances and residencies, maintenance and preservation of our historic building, and capital improvement projects.
The Friends program is our way to say thank you, providing donors of $35 or more with priority access to tickets, free and discounted ticket prices, and other Englert insider benefits and information.
Make a difference in your community, get great perks. Win-win.
