Long before tickets are put on sale, before you see a writer’s preview in the newspaper and certainly well ahead of any rehearsal – a performance can take years to actually materialize before an audience.

Dancers envision vibrant choreography. Musicians build poignant melodies. Directors interpret scripts to create relevant moments. Presenters dream new ways to bring artists and audiences together.

The Touhill works hard to keep costs low but the truth is – what you see on stage is expensive to produce. We really don't want you to think about these things; we would rather you experience only the magic of live performing arts.

Still, we want to pull back the curtain for just a moment so you know the importance of contributions from people like you.

The Friends of the Touhill provide a pool of funding to get great ideas into development and onto the stage. When you join the Friends of the Touhill, you provide the funding to get great ideas on the path to becoming great art.
