Our Patrons

Dear Friends:

We are able to do what we do because you believe in us. Our students, faculty, and visiting professionals bring tremendous talent to the stage—but you give them a stage to stand on. Our choreographers, set designers, lighting technicians, and more envision new worlds—and you give them the resources to realize them. By supporting Penn State Centre Stage, you support a home for young artists to discover their gifts and you show them the impact theatre has on everyone it touches.

While Penn State provides a foundation for our work, we rely on the generosity of our community to provide the resources we need to perform at the highest level. Gifts from people like you help us to pay for show rights, costumes, technical equipment, set materials, music, marketing, and more. With your gift, the show can go on. Let our students know that you love the theatre and care about ensuring opportunity for artists by visiting GiveTo.psu.edu/PSCentreStage

We’re thankful for your partnership, and we applaud every person who joins us in our mission to make Centre County a home for the performing arts. We can’t wait to show you what’s next.

Sincerely,

We are able to do what we do because you believe in us.
Our students, faculty, and visiting professionals bring tremendous talent to the stage-and you give them a stage to stand on. Our choreographers, costume and scenic designers, lighting technicians, and entire artistic team envision new worlds-and you give them the resources to realize those worlds. 
While Penn State provides a foundation for our theatrical productions, we rely on the generosity of our community to provide the additional resources needed to perform at the highest level. Your gifts provide financial assistance with show rights, costumes, technical equipment, set materials, music, marketing, and supporting visiting artists and educators who come to share their craft.
Your patronage will also provide assistance for students with financial need to take advantage of extra-curricular opportunities such as master classes, regional theatre productions, and conference participation.

We're thankful for your partnership and philanthropy, and we applaud every person who joins us in our mission to make our theatre training program one of the top ranked in the country. We can't wait to show you what's next!
