You can make a difference!

Your STAGE Membership supports the arts and helps build a strong community!

The word is out… Follow the news. Read the research. Ask local business and civic leaders. They all agree on at least one thing: A thriving arts culture is good for a community. That means it’s good for the people and businesses in our community. And that means it’s good for you, for your family, for your friends and neighbors.

Willamette STAGE Company plays a vital role in the cultural life of the mid-Willamette Valley, and looks forward to doing so for years to come. We have the vision and the energy. But to keep that vision alive and vibrant, we depend on your help.

We hope you’ll become a Willamette STAGE Company subscriber, and encourage your friends and acquaintances to attend our productions. But the truth is that ticket sales will cover only a portion of the cost of bringing quality live theatre to you. That’s why we urge you to join the Willamette STAGE Company family, by taking that next step of financial support.
