Why Give?


Your generosity makes it possible for Second Stage Theater to provide high quality artistic and educational programs...and enjoy exciting donor events!


Second Stage is committed to producing world premieres from America's most respected playwrights as well as new works from emerging artists. We achieve this by establishing long-standing relationships with our playwrights and by supporting the creation of new work through artist commissions


Works developed at Second Stage reflect the diverse world we live in and reach an ever-growing audience through Broadway runs, national tours and regional productions. Additionally, our "second stagings" bring new life to contemporary American plays and allow theatergoers to experience these modern classics.


Second Stage's Education and Outreach Programs encourage young people and community members to explore the stories, themes, and issues of each play presented as well as help make theater accessible and affordable to a diverse audience. These programs serve approximately 7,000 students and youth each year, providing many with their first exposure to professional theater.


From Opening Night celebrations to private cocktail parties and invitation-only readings, membership in the Champions Circle brings you even closer to the artists at Second Stage. Won't you join us?
