as a non profit organization, you make our work possible

It takes thousands of people to ensure everyone in central Minnesota will have access to the transformative power of the arts and produce shows of the highest artistic quality while keeping ticket prices accessible for the entire community. Your support, by attending GREAT productions and making a tax deductible contribution, directly impacts the caliber of what you see on stage, as well as the number of youth we reach through student matinees and summer camp programming.  Here are some of the many ways you can join the GREAT donor family!

DONATE: An investment in GREAT Theatre will help ensure high quality productions, camps and outreach that serves over 62,000 youth and families in central Minnesota. Our Annual Fund donors support everything from the raw materials it takes to make sets to discounted ticket prices for central Minnesota children and teens to attend our Student Matinees.For example, a gift of $25 covers supplies for one of the imaginative costumes  you see onstage, $50 buys a gallon of paint for one of the GREAT's creative sets and a gift of $70 covers ten tickets to a Student Matinee!

SETTING THE STAGE CAPITAL CAMPAIGN: GREAT is seeking community donors to help us Set the Stage and ensure access to the transformative power of the arts.  You can help us complete our Setting The Stage Campaign and achieve a artistic home including a scene shop, costume shop, learning lab, administrative offices, storage and rehearsals (and of course we will continue to perform our shows at the Paramount Theatre.) We need your support!

VOLUNTEER: While we are fortunate to have professional production staff, volunteers are an essential component of our shows and community outreach efforts. Volunteers are depended upon to accomplish much of the production workload. Our Volunteer & Education Center gives families and friends the opportunity to get involved, in areas where their time and talent is best served, all under one roof.  There is something for everyone in the GREAT family.
