As we begin our fifteenth season, Arizona Broadway Theatre remains rooted in our continued commitment to and investment in you – our community and our neighbors. With the expansion of our existing Encore Room, we have a new gathering space for community engagement and collaboration, a creative workspace for aspiring young artists, and a place to present diverse and varied programming to complement our Mainstage offerings.

As our roots continue to grow deeper in our community, we invite you to help us set the stage for future artistic growth. With your donation, ABT can produce exceptional work with our signature high-quality production values, bring the arts to children, honor our seniors, ensure our programming is available and accessible to all, and have an artistic, economic, and educational impact in the Valley of The Sun.

You – our donors, patrons, volunteers, and fans – are responsible for our success. Thank you for investing in our work and in our community.



When you make a tax-deductible donation to the ABT Performing Arts Association, Inc. Annual Fund, you help us create, sustain and strengthen our artistic, educational and cultural mission to provide the finest and most exciting theatre possible – both in our Mainstage productions and children’s programming.

Your legacy of giving through a thoughtful investment in ABT makes an exemplary statement about your enduring generosity. It speaks of a personal philanthropic act that helps to preserve the theatre, provides you with significant tax and financial benefits, and allows you to touch future generations of performing artists and theatre patrons in ways that have a positive and lasting impact for years to come.

The Legacy Circle was established to honor the foresight and generosity of loyal and dedicated supporters who have expressed their faith in ABT and designated a gift to the theatre in their estate plans. We invite anyone who has remembered ABT in this way to formalize their commitment by becoming a member of the Legacy Circle and allow us to thank you today for your future generosity.


ABT is appreciative of the individuals and businesses who donate in-kind goods and services to the theatre. From clothing donations for the Costume Department to special items for the Props Department, from advertising space to printing services that assist in promoting our programs, in-kind donations are important non-cash gifts that help ABT to reduce its expense budget.


ABT’s Academy for Young Performers, an educational program run by the Association, has been amazingly successful in its early years, demonstrating both the community’s interest and the ability of the theatre’s artistic staff to educate young people. Through the work of the Association, and with your support in the form of financial contributions, ABT hopes to expand its educational programs to serve performing artists of all ages and community groups, including special needs individuals.


Many companies offer to meet and equal the charitable contributions made by their employees. It’s an easy and thoughtful way for you to maximize the impact of personal donations. If you work for an organization with a matching gift program, ask your Human Resources office for the form, then complete and send it in with your donation. It will automatically double the impact of your gift and increase your benefits as a member of ABT’s Circle of Friends.


National, regional, private, and public foundations are an important source of grant funding that help support Arizona Broadway Theatre’s Annual Fund in addition to benefiting new programs or projects.
