By donating now, you join our staff, Board and family of artists to ensure that world-class theater will continue to thrive in our great community.



While we have been closed, we have adapted and re-invented how we engage with our audiences. We have been committed to creating online programming that entertains, educates, excites, and connects.  We are happy to announce our next endeavor: Two River Rising, an online benefit reading series running from July – October 2020. The selected readings reflect the past, present and future of our diverse range of programming including reimagined classics and world premieres by the industry’s most adventurous theater artists. Readings include: Your Blues Ain’t Sweet Like Mine by Ruben Santiago-Hudson; On Borrowed Time by Paul Osborn, directed by Joel Grey (featuring Blair Brown, Michael Cumpsty, Oakes Fegley, Bill Irwin, Bebe Neuwirth, Phillipa Soo, Steven Skybell, and Sam Waterston); The Hombres by Tony Meneses, directed by Annie Tippe; Seven Homeless Mammoths Wander New England by Madeleine George, directed by Leigh Silverman; and Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, modern verse translation by Hansol Jung, directed by Chay Yew.
