Trustus Theatre Kicks Off Fall
Giving Campaign

Have you thought about supporting your local theater? Do you understand the value it brings to the community? We all talk about and realize that arts and culture are integral parts of our society, and the arts community in Columbia, SC, has been growing exponentially over the recent years. But Trustus is so much more than a community theatre.

At Trustus Theatre you see shows that make you smile, laugh, think and at times even cringe. We believe in art that draws you out of your comfort zone, opening your eyes to the amazing creativity of the human mind. A story told through the eyes of a talented playwright can lead us toward a better understanding of the many complex issues facing our society today.

When you reach beyond your financial comfort zone and support Trustus Theatre you help us continue to produce plays and musicals that challenge and unite our community. Ticket sales only cover a third of our expenses. Grants, corporate sponsors, and donations from loving, giving theater fans like you make up the rest.

Please take a look at the donation levels and give to the Trustus Theatre Annual Fund. With your donation you will be able to enjoy several exciting new benefits to say thank you so much for your support:

  1. The best seats in the house will be reserved for donors and Flex Pass Holders only. You will have access to purchase these seats before anyone else starting one month before each show. We will release these seats to the general public one week before each show opening, so you’ll want to take advantage of this exclusive offer in plenty of time to pick your favorite seats.
  2. With your donation of $200 or more you will receive a card that will give you access to one free drink from the bar before every show you attend.
  3. For donors at the $500 and above level, before opening night of each show we will have a donor party where you’ll get to meet the cast, talk to the director and enjoy food and beverages on us.
  4. With your donation of $1,000 or more we will give you exclusive access to our preview nights and technical rehearsals prior to each opening.

With your support, Trustus will also be able to reach beyond our four walls and into the community. Trustus is partnering with One Columbia to provide free viewings of Improv Comedy from our resident sketch and improv troupe, The Mothers. We are also working with the award-winning Richland County Public Library to develop a series of public readings of classic plays featuring the Trustus company of professional theater artists.

Please take a minute to give to the Trustus Annual Fund today.

CLICK HERE to donate to the Trustus Theatre Annual Fund. Or you can write a check made out to Trustus Theatre and mail it to: Trustus Theatre, 520 Lady St., Columbia, SC 29201.

Thank you so very much for your support. I hope to see you at a Trustus Theatre show this year.
