Donor Levels & Benefits

These are unprecedented and unsettling times for everyone. Due to San Francisco city mandates and the rapidly changing circumstances around COVID-19, we had to cancel all productions and programming through the end of our 2019/20 season, and with it, many of our donor benefits.

While our theaters are currently dark, we've reenvisioned and reimagined some exciting new donor-only benefits that you can enjoy from the comfort and safety of your home. You'll get exclusive access to online events and digital content designed to give you an up-close and behind-the-scenes look at the theater. 

And, when we're once again able to gather safety, we'll be launching several new in-person donor benefits, like invitations to Walk the Stage, a brand new event that allows you to tour the stage and set of a production up-close. 

As a non-profit organization, we operate within the narrowest of margins, and cancelled show runs and lost ticket revenue means that we are sustaining massive financial losses every week that our theater is closed. When you renew your gift, we hope that you will also commit to renewing your donor membership for the next two years. By investing in the theater today and pledging your commitment to our future, you're providing A.C.T. with a strong foundation and the financial stability to rebound from this crisis stronger than ever.

We look forward to gathering with you in our spaces again very soon.
