Setting the Stage for the Next 60 Years
Help us reach our goal of $200,000!
Your gift today ensures future generations will benefit from The Shaw’s extraordinary performances, education and outreach programs.

At The Shaw, we firmly believe everyone should have equitable access to our art, whether it’s through our plays, our events or our education and volunteer programs. Each year we devote our resources to developing art and education programs – both online and in person – to help people of all ages stay engaged and connected with The Shaw. When you donate to our 60th Anniversary Special Appeal, your contribution will go straight to work in ensuring future generations can enjoy, learn and benefit from the Festival’s performances and programs.

Setting the Stage for the Next 60 Years is a special appeal to support three key areas of investment vital to ensuring equitable access to our art now and in the years to come. Your donation will:

  • Ensure affordable ticket prices for young people
  • Promote curiosity beyond the stage
  • Support the development of our creative teams this season and for the next 60 seasons
“Let’s work together to ensure that everybody who wants to experience and participate in the magic of theatre at The Shaw has an equal opportunity to do so. The Shaw is a party to which everyone is invited!”

– Tim Jennings, Executive Director/CEO
