What is Avant Bard? It’s a theatre with more than 25 years producing some of the most dynamic and cutting-edge works from the repertory of classical and classically-minded theatre in the region. Six Helen Hayes Awards; 27 Helen Hayes nominations; so many Helen Hayes Recommended productions that we have lost count; inclusion in the Catalogue for Philanthropy as one of the best small charities in the region not once but twice! Deeply engaged in our Arlington community, we reach out to the entire region with affordable, intimate productions.
When you donate to Avant Bard Theatre, you honor the past and secure the future of the edgiest, gutsiest, most entertaining theatre around. Your support is vital if we are to continue to provide visionary productions of classic plays in intimate settings at affordable prices. No matter how many tickets we sell, we cannot cover our costs on box office income alone; in fact, ticket revenue covers less than 25% of our budget for the year.
That's why we are so grateful that you have chosen to join our growing family of donors, whose generous support makes our work possible. We welcome contributions of any amount; all donations are fully tax deductible.
Thank you for making Avant Bard the leading alternative classical theatre in the region. With your help, we look forward to many more exciting years together.
All the best,
Artistic and Executive Director
