What role does theater play in your life? What roles have you played in creating art like you’ve seen on the Playhouse stage? Producing art and programs with the highest artistic quality takes a great deal of support beyond our accessible ticket prices, and that's where our donors have made a real difference.

Everyone who contributes to Westport Country Playhouse has their own personal reasons for doing so. Whether it's supporting the quality shows produced onstage, our wonderful children’s programming, ticket subsidies for college students and families, or the central role WCP plays in the community, Playhouse donors give because they know they’re making that difference. As we approach Giving Tuesday (on December 1st), we want to highlight the amazing people that make theater happen here at the Playhouse: you.

Just like you, these supporters believe that art and community should come first. They’ve donated their time as Playhouse volunteers, and/or their resources as donors, and as this season of (thanks)giving approaches, we’d like to applaud their support. It doesn’t take much to make a difference, and here are three easy ways you can help:

  • Spread the word! Social media plays a huge role on Giving Tuesday via the hashtag #GivingTuesday. Help us spread the word about Westport Country Playhouse by sharing our Facebook posts and tweets on December 1st. The more people we can reach, the better! (And if you haven’t already, please make sure you’re following us on Facebook and Twitter.) 
  • Volunteer! There are many opportunities to participate in the collaborative process of creating theater. If you have time, special interests or special skills, you may want to consider volunteering for the Playhouse.
  • Make a gift! Help support Theater Worth Talking About with a contribution of any amount, this year.

Our donors, patrons, and supporters make us who we are. Thank you for being a part of this community!
