Support Our Program

CSUN Theatre Supporter, we need your help! Each semester, more than 100 students come together – working with faculty, staff, and professional guest artists – to create theatrical works on our stages, like William Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Legally Blonde: The Musical, or A Streetcar Named Desire. It costs us about $100,000 to bring these productions to our stages, and while we receive support from the university for our shows, revenue from ticket sales makes up more than 50% of our budget.

If you can, please consider donating whatever you might normally spend on tickets this semester by visiting the giving portal. Your support today means that we can continue to bring you the new theatrical works you love and enjoy. Whatever you can do, it is greatly appreciated!

On behalf of all of us at Theatre CSUN, thank you for your support!
