Donor Benefits

For over 35 years, HITS Theatre has provided professional-level theatre education in a nurturing environment that encourages children to learn and grow, both as individuals and as performers. Our mission would not be possible without the generosity of loyal donors like you. Tuition covers only a fraction of the Theatre's operating costs each year. HITS relies on the generosity of our donors to sustain our productions and programs at the highest level of educational excellence. Your contribution truly makes a difference.

As a thank you, HITS donors enjoy a number of benefits, including reserved seating at our annual Miller Outdoor Theatre Performance. For a full list of donor benefits, see below.

Did You Know? You may be able to double your donation. Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift! A matching gift is a great way for you to increase the impact of your donation to HITS Theatre.
