"Where does my donation go?"
Glad you asked! Every dollar you donate goes toward continuing and building the top-quality programs you've come to expect from Town Hall Theatre. It goes into our Main Stage productions, it goes into our Town Hall Education programs, plus it helps bring our Music and Comedy events to your neighborhood.
Yep. Think of us as the 67-year-old block party that just keeps getting better.
"A block party? Really?"
Umm... let's get back to the point.
"Yeah. So, what's so great about Town Hall?"
Allow us to elaborate...
Town Hall's Main Stage Season
Over the past several seasons, Town Hall has upped their quality, bringing you the greatest of contemporary plays -- like Picasso at the Lapin Agile, Proof, and the upcoming Bay Area premiere of The Farnsworth Invention -- along side your favorite classics -- like Pygmalion, Twelfth Night, and next season's Measure for Measure.
Also, we've brought some of the greatest acting, directing, and designing talent from around the bay to your doorstep. Town Hall attracts some of the best talent from theatres like Berkeley Rep, Cal Shakes, CenterREP, and many more.
"Sounds good. What else have you got?"
Hold on, we haven't even warmed up yet.
Town Hall Education
Town Hall has offered award-winning education programs since the 1950's, and we're still going strong because of a mix of terrific Teaching Artists and pure kid energy. ... Well, that and your donations. Costumes, sets, props, teachers, performance rights to plays, lighting: Your donation goes a long way to helping a young performer get a head-start on the road to success.
THE alumni have gone on to top-notch performing arts schools like UCLA, NYU, and RADA. Our students also take classes at A.C.T., Cal Shakes, and Young REP, and still keep coming back to Town Hall.
"That all sounds great. Is there more?"
More than amazing theatre and some of the best theatre education in the area? You bet!
Music and Comedy
If you're into great local music, we've got you covered! For two years running, we've rounded up the best Lamorinda has to offer for the Lafayette Community Music Festival. We played host to top-tier talent like Vampire Weekend and, this June, Nicki Bluhm. Drew Harrison -- with and without The Sun Kings -- has been on our stage, and that's just a sampling of the outstanding musical acts that Town Hall has brought to your community.
Feel like a laugh? Will Durst, Piano Fight, and ComedySports have repeatedly brought the funny as part of our Town Hall Comedy Series, hosted by Crisis Hopkins.
"Wow. That's a lot for one place."
I know, right? It's like taking a trip to The City without having to go to The City. No bridge. No tunnel. No BART. Just fun.
"How can I keep this going?"
Oh, it is.
"Well, I got to get going."
Take it easy. We should do this again! Real quick, though; if you don't want to donate online you can always mail your donation in. Just make your check payable to:
