Play a Role

We are in the midst of our 9th season of providing musical theatre to the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign during a challenging economic time. In addition to rent for the theater itself, construction space, and other ongoing expenses, each production involves royalties, costumes, sets, lighting, sound, stipends for instrumentalists, and script costs, to name a few. A large-scale musicals cost tens of thousands of dollars. Fortunately, we are able to keep our ticket prices down with the help of dedicated volunteers, sponsors, and a loyal membership base. This support enables us to maintain a high level of excellence we have offered in our first few seasons, and in order to keep the show going, we could use help from you.


In order to put on a show of the caliber that we all know is possible, we are in need of your support.
