*Leave a Legacy
One of the most powerful ways to support outstanding theatre in the community for years to come is through a gift in your will. Thanks to some friends of TUTS, you can make a will for free in less than 25 minutes (or get started in the process, then find a lawyer near you.)
Leave a planned gift by writing your will today. Learn more about planned giving here
