Now in its 45th season, Philadelphia Theatre Company is regarded as one of the leading producers of work from the playwrights, actors, directors, and designers who represent the next generation of great American artists.
Housed in the state-of-the-art Suzanne Roberts Theatre and under the artistic direction of Paige Price, the Company develops plays and musicals that are thoughtfully conceived and imaginatively staged. Philadelphia Theatre Company’s commitment to theatre that is as challenging as it is entertaining stands at the heart of the Company’s effort to develop an audience of open-minded theatregoers.

Subscriptions and ticket sales comprise only a portion of the Company’s revenues. As a non-profit organization, Philadelphia Theatre Company relies on the generous support of individuals, businesses, foundations, and other institutions to provide affordable tickets, fund accessibility and educational initiatives, and make great theatre happen. World premieres, site-specific productions, innovative solo performances, outreach initiatives: Everything Philadelphia Theatre Company does on the stage and beyond is thanks to you.

INDIVIDUAL GIVING

A gift of any amount supports our ability to bring the most vibrant theatrical voices to the Suzanne Roberts Theatre. With your support, we inspire audiences to be curious and to explore the American experience from new perspectives. Your gift also allows us to make tickets available at drastically reduced prices every season, opening the transformative world of theatre to everyone. Support at the $100 level and above qualifies you for membership in one of our giving circles, which comes complete with unique access to the world of theatre-making.

HEADLINERS

Philadelphia Theatre Company’s giving circle for donors under 40, Headliners is made up of young professionals from across the Delaware Valley who are passionate about culture and civic engagement. The work Philadelphia Theatre Company does to showcase plays and musicals by and for underrepresented communities and build an audience that reflects the ethnic, racial, cultural, and socioeconomic diversity of the city would be impossible without this new generation of philanthropically-minded Philadelphians. Headliners brings everyone from up-and-coming entrepreneurs to performance enthusiasts together for one-of-a-kind evenings at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre.
