Support Civic Theatre
When you contribute to Civic Theatre, you are providing the essential support necessary for Civic to provide 55,000 opportunities on the stage, behind the scenes, in the classroom, and in the audience to community members every year.
Did you know? Civic Theatre generates less than 50% of its income through Mainstage and educational programs. The remaining portion of revenue arrives through the generous support of individuals, foundations, and corporations.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today.

A contribution to the general operating support allows Civic to accomplish these goals with adequate administrative and technical support. Gifts designated toward general operating allow Civic to direct donations where they are needed most. Whether donations are used to purchase paint for a set, offset Box Office fees, dry clean costumes, or hire a teaching artist for an outreach program, general operating support goes the furthest to help Civic succeed.
The heart of Civic’s artistic vision is the creation of magic through theatre. This magic is far greater than the special effects that enhance a production; it inspires every participant by exposing them to new ideas, igniting their imaginations, provoking eye-opening conversations, and connecting individuals of various backgrounds. Help us support this vision by making a tax-deductible donation to Civic Theatre today.
Help Civic continue providing these opportunities to Central Indiana students by making a tax-deductible donation today.
Storytime with Civic, funded by PNC’s Grow Up Great program, creates opportunities for over 4,000 members of the early childhood community to incorporate theatre into their curriculum, with a particular emphasis on low-income and rural populations across Central Indiana.
Perfect Harmony is an inclusive performance troupe for elementary and middle school performers, executed in partnership with the Special Olympics of Indiana and known for its anti-bullying effect.
To further offer inclusive opportunities, Civic Theatre has provided annual sensory-friendly performances of DR. SEUSS’S THE CAT IN THE HAT since 2014.
Through the support of the Clay Township Board of Trustees and IU Health North, SneakView provides free theatre access to at least 2,500 seniors at the Tarkington annually and sends Civic performers to non-profit nursing homes.
In January 2017, Civic began Stage 2, a partnership with Prevail of Hamilton County that teaches victims of domestic violence and abuse acting techniques in order to build confidence, adopt strong communication techniques, and practice a healthy form of escapism.
Civic has begun offering complimentary tickets and discount classes to members of United Service Organizations and their families.
