Introducing: The Producers’ Circle




We’d usually be starting a brand new season around this time of year, but that’s not possible at present. Now, more than ever, we need your support.

Today, we are launching The Producers’ Circle to sustain the future of Trustus Theatre – and if you have a special place in your heart for this theatre, we hope you’ll join today and become a supporting member of our annual fund!

Thanks to new online giving options, you can make monthly or quarterly recurring donations at These recurring donations will give Trustus the ability to support the theatre’s operating expenses during the pandemic, as well as give us the ability to create new streaming events and prepare for our return to live performance.

As ticket buyers and contributors, your support has made it possible for Trustus Theatre to present award-winning contemporary and original works for 35 years right here in Columbia, SC. Truly, we are here BECAUSE OF YOU!

There are benefits to becoming a member of The Producers’ Circle (you won’t mind if we give you preferential treatment, right?), and with recurring donations – your membership will build to new levels over the course of the coming year. [See levels below]

Friends, please support us through this moment. We know that so many are facing a difficult time, but all donations levels are meaningful to our sustainability and essential to our resilience. Join The Producers’ Circle today so that we can gather under the stage lights again once it’s safe.

We miss you. Stay well. Stay safe. We can’t thank you enough.
