Support Stages


Did you know that donations account for more than 50% of Stages’ annual operating budget as a not-for-profit organization?

Gifts from individual community members, companies, and other institutions support our year-round series of shows, welcoming thousands of visitors to our theaters and providing meaningful employment for hundreds of Houston performers, creators, writers, musicians, technicians, and staff. Even more, you support a range of programs like free and low-cost student tickets, the Young Artists Conservatory, sensory-friendly and American Sign Language interpreted performances, our Mentor-Mentee program, Sunday Sit-Down discussions, community events and partnerships, performance apprenticeships, producing the Sin Muros Latinx Theater Festival, and more.
