The Production Fund provides necessary support for all Austin Playhouse productions and annual operating expenses throughout the year. Ticket sales cover less than 60% of the cost of running our professional theatre. Outside support from individuals, corporations, and foundations is crucial.

Your support sustains over 140 live performances annually, develops new plays, provides meaningful employment to local theatre artists, and brings FREE live theatre programming to over 3,000 low-income students.

Every gift received is important to the future of Austin Playhouse and to the actors, designers, directors, and technical staff of each production. Production Fund donations of $50 or more will be acknowledged in the playbill of each production for one calendar year.
