Wish List

We’re always on the lookout for free (or inexpensive) copying or printing services. Free rehearsal space can help us save money and get our productions ready to open. Free or inexpensive set materials (paint, wood, fabric and other building materials) are needed every year in early July. Dry, long-term storage space is also a growing need.

And, of course, monetary donations are always welcome! As ticket prices cover only a fraction of our production costs, we especially appreciate our donors. Essential Theatre is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so your donations are tax deductible. Please help us to support new work by Georgia Playwrights! Make a donation or become a sponsor today!
