Become a Friend of The Smith Center
Our most enthusiastic supporters choose to pair their tickets with a gift to the Annual Fund Charter Campaign to experience The Smith Center from both sides of the curtain.
All donors to the Annual Fund become card-carrying Friends of The Smith Center who receive exclusive opportunities including artist meet-and-greets, invitations to private tours and events, and access to the performing arts in personal and exciting ways! To learn about all of our benefits, click here.
The scope of the Annual Fund is varied, but your support will…
- Fill the gap between ticket revenue and operating costs.
- Provide performing arts-based educational opportunities for our students.
- Bring world-class performances to all of our stages.
- Build community with free and low cost events.
$250 assists with the greatest needs of The Smith Center, which includes maintenance work and improvements to our beautiful facilities.
$1,000 enhances our ability to provide technologically advanced services, like those for hearing and visually impaired patrons.
$2,000 makes it possible to offer a six-week workshop – tailored to meet specific goals and led by local teaching artists – in partnership with schools and community organizations.
$2,750 allows for an “all-star” group of ushers and front of house staff for each performance.
$5,000 helps cover fees associated with participating in the National High School Musical Theater Awards program. This community-wide competition and the culmination event at The Smith Center celebrates and raises the profile of theater students, educators and local high school arts programs.
$8,000 enables us to bring in – for an entire week! – a Kennedy Center-affiliated teaching artist to work with more than 200 students and provide arts-based the professional development training for at least 50 teachers, who will continue to use skills with many more students throughout their careers.
$10,000 provides significant support in allowing presentations of world renowned orchestras, dance companies, musicians and performers on all of our stages.
