Support the Hipp

The Hippodrome needs supporters like you to help us continue the programs that support our artistic mission: produce high-quality performances, cinematic programming, award-winning educational programming, and events. During this outbreak of COVID-19, your support is more vital than ever, enabling us to pay our staff as they continue working to prepare the summer musical and the upcoming 20/21 Season. The Hippodrome Theatre is an approved 501(c)(3) organization.

These donations go towards everything from theater productions, to the education department, to putting on community events. We accept donations of any size, and provide all documentation to take advantage of tax benefits.
