The Inner Circle

We depend on you; you share our vision and desire for innovative theater and quality theatre education. We are simplifying how to join the family. Sponsors, Contributors, and Subscribers are combining forces as The Inner Circle. This new program is made up of single ticket buyers, subscribers, donors, individual sponsors, families, small businesses, and corporations, making it far more powerful (and crucial) than any subscription or donor program.

Starting at $10/month.

Open Stage is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, donations are tax deductible.

Open Stage Artists Caroline Chronister, Sharia Benn, Mina Ghani, Karen Ruch

Will you join?

With ticket sales, donations, and sponsorships combined, our goal is to rally our family of supporters to raise $200,000. We’re dependent on the generosity of our community, and with the challenges of the current health crisis, we need you more than ever. 


Can you help? For as little as $10 each month, you can join The Inner Circle today and support important programs, like The Alsedek Theatre School, which impacts over 3,000 students each year. 


Thank you for going the extra mile and helping us meet our goals. That special commitment is also why a significant portion of each Inner Circle level is tax-deductible. With our new Inner Circle program, all giving is combined with a series of optional benefits: you can even get an insider’s look at our artistic process or private cocktail parties with artists and staff!

The Show Must Go On-line

While gathering in-person is difficult in these odd days, we have pivoted to present a full season of streamed, online productions! Help us beam thought-provoking theatre and education from our stages to the safety (and comfort) of your couch.

Increasing Access

Accessibility is important to us at Open Stage. Theatre can be expensive and elitist. So we felt it was time to knock down barriers. To assure that everyone can enjoy the new, exciting performances, every ticket this season is now free and pay-what-you-will.

The Bottom Line

Producing quality, virtual theatre comes with expenses. Because of the health crisis, our annual budget has been decreased by more than 30%, so creating an easy way for people to support us is more important than ever. Our artists need you. Our students need you. Your donation will help tell important stories and assure that the story-telling is accessible to all.

It’s been a hard few months for all of us. But even though there are difficulties ahead, there’s still much to celebrate. And even though our physical doors are shut, we’re still going strong with classes and live programming coming directly to you: our community of theatre lovers. Through all of this, we’re here for you. Thank you for being there for us. Will you help today and join The Inner Circle? We hope you will.


Thank you for being a part of our family. These may be uncertain times, but we’ll emerge from them stronger, more equitable, and more vibrant than ever. And until then, we’ll be here at 25 North Court Street, creating art in new and exciting ways. Join us for the ride?
