During the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve been so fortunate to receive messages of support and kindness from so many of you – patrons, volunteers, sponsors, and community members. Thank you.
 
To be completely transparent, Circle Theatre is in the position of losing approximately $200,000 in ticket and fundraising revenue with the postponement of our 2020 season.
 
There are many ways that you can support Circle Theatre in these trying times. Below are just a few of the many ways that you can support Circle today.
