Theatre Family Tree

The Renaissance Center's Theatre Family Tree




We Need Your Help!

The live performances you will enjoy at The Renaissance Center are made possible by the support of patrons like you. The reality is, ticket sales only cover a small portion (about 50%) of the total operating budget for The Theatre Department. The remaining expenses are covered by corporate sponsors, grants and donations from individuals like yourself who donate generously.



TheatreTree1The Renaissance Center’s Theatre Family Tree is a program to benefit and support the Theatre Arts programs offered at the center.

Thousands of people are touched each year by the theatre programs of The Renaissance Center. Whether they take a class, attend a workshop, see a live M.E.T. (Mind Enriching Theatre) production on a field trip, enjoy a show in the Gaslight Dinner Theatre, get their first theatre experience in the Young Entertainers on Stage series or live out their dreams in a Renaissance Players community production, each person becomes a part of the Theatre Family of The Renaissance Center.

LeavesProceeds from the Theatre Family Tree project help those programs grow and improve, enabling more people to experience the joy of a thriving Theatre Arts community.

Your one-time gift will be recognized with an engraved leaf on our Theatre Family Tree, which is on permanent display in the rotunda outside the Performance Hall. Gifts support the Theatre Arts Programs at The Renaissance Center.

Theatre Tree Leaves are:
Bronze Leaf      $25
Silver Leaf         $50
Gold Leaf          $75

Leaves will be engraved with the individual donor’s name or a donor family’s name and attached to the Theatre Family Tree in acknowledgement of your gift.

ALL GIFTS ARE IMPORTANT! The Renaissance Center is a 501(c)(3), so your gift is 100% tax deductible. In addition, ask your employer if they participate in an employee matching gifts program. You could double your gift to The Theatre Department, and they too can support what you believe is important to the community.
