Join Us — Support the Best in American Theatre!

Your financial support is an essential part of creating nationally acclaimed, professional theatre. Your tax-deductible gift, and those of donors like you, are the means by which the Purple Rose is able to create extraordinary productions that challenge and entertain audiences; to offer finely-tuned education programs; to keep ticket prices affordable for all theatergoers; and to enrich the life of a community we all share.

The Purple Rose is one of America’s most celebrated regional theatres. It is the creative home of world-class actors, directors, playwrights, designers, and technicians. It is a training ground for talented young people. Perhaps most importantly — as Jeff Daniels promised when he founded the theatre — new plays developed at the Rose provide “a voice from the heartland” that enriches the American theatrical landscape.

Donors like you make it all possible. Donors like you underwrite more than one-third of the production costs of each outstanding theatre season. Donors like you are at the critical heart of everything the Purple Rose accomplishes.

Please consider supporting the best in theatre by making your tax-deductible gift to the Purple Rose. Every dollar will be put to good use.
