A Day Where the World Comes Together to Give
Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is an unprecedented global movement of generosity taking place on December 3, 2019. #GivingTuesday is a great opportunity to experience the joy of giving back while collaborating with other theatre lovers over social media to inspire even more giving!
Ticket sales cover only 40% of program and production costs at the Shakespeare Theatre Company. By donating this #GivingTuesday YOU can help us bridge the gap and continue creating the extraordinary theatre you have come to love. As we head into a new and exciting season, we recognize that the DC community is truly special, and we thank you all for helping us blossom into the organization we have become.
