Invest in Intimate Theatre, Make a Gift Today

Investing in new works involves great financial risk, and sustaining the Company’s robust programming schedule on a grassroots budget can be a daunting task.

Your gift will help us to continue our tradition of producing new works in a powerful, intimate setting in Los Angeles. It will help us keep ticket prices affordable, making live theatre accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds. And it will help to give voice to new and established playwrights, as well as an extensive company of artists, directors, designers, and technicians who believe, as you do, that theatre is a vital part of our national culture.

Ticket sales only cover 30% of the cost of productions; your support will go towards:

  • Playwright & Actor Stipends
  • Lighting & Sound Design
  • Ticket subsidies for seniors, students, and other underserved audiences
  • Free community programming

The Road is able to accept donations in the form of appreciated securities (stocks or mutual funds). Giving goods or offering services at no cost to a charitable organization is called an In-Kind Donation, and is usually tax deductible! The Road welcomes in-kind donations of food and beverages for our opening night receptions, printing services, chairs, or other useful donations. If you have goods or services that you would like to donate to our theatre, please contact us!

Current Sponsors Include: 

To name a seat in one of our theatres after yourself or a loved one, please contact our Road Theatre staff at (818) 761-8838. For a gift of $550, patrons will receive a seat naming opportunity, as well as two opening night tickets to all remaining shows in the current season, and week-long passes to the Summer Playwrights Festival.

The Road offers corporate sponsorship opportunities for its annual Summer Playwrights Festival, which draws an audience of over 1,000 community members. For more information regarding advertising opportunities in our Season program, at our Summer Playwrights Festival, or on our website, please contact us.

The Road is able to accept donations in the form of appreciated securities (stocks or mutual funds). If you are planning to make a donation, please contact us.

There are two advantages for you:

  1. You will pay no taxes on any capital gains derived from the appreciation; and
  2. You may deduct the full fair market value of the donated securities as a charitable contribution.

Please consult with your tax advisor regarding the deductibility of your donations.
