THE ANNUAL FUND
Donate any amount, at any time. Your tax-deductible contribution helps TUTS provide essential resources for training future artists, introducing musical theatre to new audiences, and reaching out to disadvantaged youth in our community. Our Annual Fund helps bridge that critical gap between expenses and ticket revenues, allowing us to continue bringing the best of Broadway to Houston. Whatever you can do, whenever you can do it, we’re grateful for the delight you help us deliver year-round. You may DONATE NOW to our annual fund!
You give to TUTS, TUTS gives right back. Our Patron Club donors enjoy a variety of unique and exclusive benefits, like VIP seating and discounts on ticket subscriptions. With seasonal contributions ranging from a few hundred to a few thousand, our members’ dollars help us further TUTS’ impact on stage and beyond… so we like to show a little appreciation. Patron perks vary with contribution level, but may include special preview performances and private tours, along with complimentary drink tickets, valet parking, and access to the best seats in the house.
With an Individual Gift to Theatre Under The Stars’ Education Programs, you may support:
|Humphreys School of Musical Theatre||General Education|
|The River Performing & Visual Arts Center||Classes In The Community|
|Tommy Tune Awards||Summer Conservatory|
Keep the halls alive with the sound of music. Your educational gift helps bring the joys of singing, dance and drama to the next generation. A primary purpose of Theatre Under the Stars is to share the magic of musical theatre with as many audiences as we can—via HSMT, our professional training academy; our outreach through Classes in the Community and The River; and various other student programs and scholarships that champion excellence in the arts. Your generosity provides anything from new tables to new tablets, and is often the difference that brings a special field trip to fruition.
Double the drama (in a good way) with a Matching Gift to TUTS, and double our impact in the theatre and throughout the city. Remind your boss that when and if they match your charitable donation, the effect is twice as nice for everyone—we’ll make sure their efforts are recognized. A little tit for tat for TUTS. There’s just nothing quite like a charitable duet.
Leave behind a legacy. Named in honor of our founder, The Young Society was created to recognize those thoughtful friends who have named TUTS as a beneficiary. Whether it’s a bequest in a will, a paid-up life insurance policy, or even a gift of real estate, a planned gift to Theatre Under The Stars will enrich the lives of thousands of theatergoers and students for years to come. While assurance of Houston’s legacy of musical theatre is rewarding in itself, members may also enjoy special tax benefits.
Through fabulous fundraising events and countless volunteer hours, this dynamic group of women helps TUTS remain a national model for all-access theatre. Equal parts social group and staunch supporter of the arts, Leading Ladies is an all-female force dedicated to helping TUTS do what it does best. By way of special events, smart networking and plenty of energy and enthusiasm, Leading Ladies has helped promote and fundraise a multitude of TUTS initiatives, from pioneering new works to bringing musical theatre into more schools. These women know how to make things happen. They know how to throw a party. And they’d love to get to know you.
