As a non-profit theater organization, Actor’s Express relies on the support of our donors, season subscribers and single ticket buyers. However, ticket sales account for less than half of our operating funds. With the impact that current events have had on the arts community, your support is needed now more than ever. Please consider donating to help AE continue to create the type of bold and forward-thinking performances you won’t see anywhere else. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible.
