Civic Strong

At Spokane Civic Theatre, the safety, security and good health of our employees, patrons and volunteers is our highest priority.

Despite Civic being currently unable to fully act out our mission to produce shows and provide performing arts training, we remain laser-beam focused on making the most of the pause COVID-19 has forced by evaluating every element of our company and paying necessary mind to the creative ‘home’ of our collaborators, donors, patrons, sponsors, staff, and volunteers — our building. From safety enhancements and space management to strategic planning and programming considerations, our priority is to make this unexpected and unprecedented time count for our community.

At this increasingly vulnerable time, please consider donating to Civic to help maintain our mandated pause and ensure a healthy recovery.

How Your Donations are Used

Academy

Over 300 children attend and train at The Academy annually. These children become the backbone of the local high school drama programs in Spokane, and enhance exposure to the performing arts in the area. Funding for the academy provides scholarships for youth, and fund special programs such as Shakespeare in Schools, Seasonal Intensives, and various workshops throughout the year.

Production and Voluntarism

Productions at the theatre rely on philanthropic sponsors and donors that assist in the procurement of royalties for plays, music, light, and sound. Also funding supports our fully directed volunteer productions with training and experience for all adults in the dramatic arts. Spokane Civic Theatre constantly strives to expand volunteer roles, upgrade production value, and provide opportunities for volunteers to learn new skills.

Building and Property

Going 70 years strong, and 50 at our current location, the theatre needs constant tender, loving care. General support for the theatre allows us to use resources to upgrade existing furnishings and equipment, and to replace and renew those features to allow us to operate most efficiently.

Did you know?

Ticket purchase only covers 70% of our production costs? Because of our commitment to provide quality live theatre to our community at an affordable price, we rely on your contributions to bridge the 30% gap.

What Others Have to Say About Us

It is rare to have any other media reach you on the level of a live performance, whether it is music or theater. When you couple that with a financially responsible institution that continually raises the bar for itself, it’s amazing that more people don’t see fit to support such a quality endeavor.

I had gotten out of the habit of going to Civic for a while and was truly amazed when I started going more often. The higher quality of every aspect of the theater was evident. I am continually amazed at what Civic accomplishes and baffled at how many people are unaware of the theater. Tell your friends!

Also, don’t be shy about suggesting sponsorship to those you think might have some interest. Something this good doesn’t just happen by accident.

Another aspect I love about Civic is their education program. I have sent nieces and nephews to Civic’s summer camp programs and they all loved the experience. Their parents have continued to sign them up for more classes. Some of the younger kids in the clan came to their performances and were absolutely riveted on these kids on the stage; they will also be signed up for classes when they’re old enough. If it wasn’t obvious before seeing the looks on their faces, it certainly was evident after: you just can’t beat a live performance, even if it’s a bunch of little kids in their first endeavor.

I truly hope reading this will inspire you to not only give more support, but also drum up more support for this unique local gem.”
