YOU Can Expand Access To Live Theatre!

Thank you for contributing to this community-centric joint venture among many to help the many. You are appreciated.

Join Us In The Giving Circle

When you or your business join the ATX Theatre Giving Circle with a contribution of $1,000 or more, you’re strengthening the collective magnetism of theatre-going and broadening theatre access for school children in your city! As a Giving Circle member, you’ll receive exclusive invitations to CircleUp events.

What’s a CircleUp?

istock-1152125129.jpg

During a theatre production’s run, “circle-up” is the tradition of coming together as an ensemble for a focused moment of purposefulness before “places” are called. Soon thereafter, the show launches with an energy that always feels greater than the sum of its parts.

We’re giving this grounding, light-hearted tradition a celebratory twist for the Giving Circle: We’ll CircleUp every four months to ground this volunteer organization in tight-knit community support as we expand access and awareness in our city — which is only possible if citizens and business leaders work together with theatre makers. Also on the guest list will be four affiliated theatre companies (out of the 85 at the core of ATX Theatre) to serve up a little slice of wonderful — exclusively for GivingCircle contributors like you. You’ll enjoy a robust new community and delight in the diverse selections.

Inaugural CircleUp: 10/01/21

Along with a note of appreciation for your (soon-to-be) tax-deductible contribution (application pending), you’ll receive a set of exclusive entry passes to your first CircleUp. Because you are jumping in early to join this unique, community-centric* approach to supporting arts equity and awareness, the festivities promise an equally innovative flair! Our inaugural CircleUp on October 1, 2021 will feature Ground Floor Theatre, xxxx, xxxx, and xxxxxx.* You’re encouraged to bring the maximum number of guests determined by your chosen contribution level (see below). Each CircleUp will include a wider array of Austinites who care about our vital arts culture as much as you do. You never know who you might meet there!
