WaterTower Theatre is a nonprofit organization, and ticket revenue covers only 45% of our operating costs. In an effort to make WaterTower Theatre as accessible as possible to everyone by keeping ticket prices affordable, we rely on charitable contributions for 55% of our operating income. Without it, we simply wouldn't be here and we wouldn’t be able to bring you the kind of high-quality, award-winning performances our community has come to enjoy.

WaterTower Theatre’s commitment to our community is reflected in our mission: to open minds with a diverse mix of plays and educational programs that inspire people to experience and embrace live theatre. We're dedicated to fulfilling that mission but, as you know, we can't do it alone. The pursuit of excellence and the ability to introduce new audiences to the power of live theatre takes the support of members from the community like you, whose very lives we seek to enrich.
