Because the CTC is a 501(c)3 non-profit, every donation is tax-deductible.

Because affordability is so important to us, ticket sales only make up 37% of our budget. Donations are vital to our continued success.

We believe that theater has the power to provoke change, enrich lives, and build a community.

Already in 2017, donations have allowed us to…

  • produce 150 performances with tickets of $10 or less.
  • provide financial aid for over 40 students to take classes.
  • support 3 interns in a summer of learning.
  • engage more than 850 audience members in free performances on the riverfront patio.
  • donate over 500 tickets to local charities.

Please consider supporting us and the Wakefield community by making a donation today.

The CTC is a small, local, non-profit theater that believes in opportunities for everyone.

We keep our ticket prices and class fees low, but we still believe that paying artists is important for our work, for our artists, and for our community. Donations help us fulfill our promises to our audiences and artists, while growing each and every year.

Donations ensure that we can pay the staff necessary to provide the wide-array of programs that we do. We have more performances per year than any other theater company in Rhode Island. We have shows every weekend of the year, and feature everything from scripted shows to family shows to our Wakefield Idol singing competition to free Shakespeare on the patio! We want to be a place where everyone in the community can feel welcome. All of this is a huge undertaking for a small staff of four full-time employees.

Your donations help us be able to focus on making our work the best it can be, and creating a space for everyone at the CTC.
