Overview

As the region’s only professional theatre, the Hippodrome has produced over 40 seasons and has connected patrons with the nation’s most prominent playwrights and artists. The theatre offers unparalleled artistic and educational programs that are meaningful enriching for the community to be acknowledged nationally as a professional theatre and provides the most extensive range of cultural programming in the region.

During its 41 year history, the Hippodrome Theatre, a 501(c)3 registered nonprofit arts organization and professional regional theater, has provided artistic excellence through mainstage productions, art-house films, rental opportunities and educational programming to 4.5 million people. Seventy percent of Hippodrome audience members are in-county and 30 percent of our patrons are out-of-county. 

This could not be possible without the generosity of our donors, foundation support and corporate sponsors.  The Hippodrome relies on your support to create our extraordinary productions that challenge, entertain and stimulate audiences; offer limited-released art-house films, cinema programming and community film festivals; provide innovative educational programs that engage theatre lovers of all ages; and maintain ticket prices at a level that is accessible to all theatre goers.

With the significant decline in government funding for the arts, donations and sponsorships are crucial to the continued success of the theater. With your support, we will be able to continue enriching the lives of over 150,000 people each year with our productions, films, festivals, and education and outreach programs.
