Support excellence at UMassTheater!

We are proud of the work our students, faculty, and staff do here in the Department of Theater, whether it’s onstage, in the shops, or in class, and we’re constantly seeking opportunities to give our students even more. A gift to the general fund allows us to maximize those opportunities when they come to us, whether it’s the ability to fund a guest artist to mentor students working on a mainstage show or an opportunity to purchase state-of-the-industry equipment for our students to learn to use.
