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 $85,000 in ticket and fundraising revenue with the cancellation of the first musical of our season Disaster! and the postponement of the Season Kickoff: American Graffiti in Concert. This is revenue that we need in order to survive as a non-profit organization. Now, more than ever, we are in need of funds to keep Circle Theatre operational. We’re so glad that so many of you have asked “How can I help?”
 
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.
