Together, we create a community through live theatre.

American Stage’s world class professional productions and quality education programs are made possible by your gifts to our Annual Fund.

As a non-profit 501c (3) organization, ticket sales cover only 60% of American Stage’s programming costs. Your donation to our annual fund helps provide the additional 40% of our costs to produce powerful professional theatre and quality arts education. Whether $100 or $10,000 — your gift makes a tremendous impact on our ability to make a meaningful contribution to the cultural landscape of our community.

American Stage and our artists are committed to making a real difference in our community and we rely upon your generous support to ensure that high-quality, professional live theatre thrives in Tampa Bay.

Featuring a robust array of productions, classes and events year-round that appeal to our diverse community, American Stage’s programming:

  • Connects artists and audiences to the best of professional live theatre.
  • Inspires us to be adventurous, bold, thoughtful and innovative.
  • Features quality productions of the most powerful stories of the moment and the most defining stories from our past.
  • Asks compelling questions and engages one another in conversation.
  • Unites our community in the shared experience of being human.
  • Shapes the future of Tampa Bay. Theatre arts education and outreach develop young people as individuals, while also cultivating an engaged community and a creative and competent workforce.

I hope you’ll consider making a year-end, tax-deductible gift to American Stage.
Together, we’ll keep sharing connection and unity with POWERFUL STORIES, BOLDLY TOLD.

Gifts of any size are welcome, but an annual contribution of $100 or more will be recognized through our Annual Fund membership program.
