Support Touhill

“We found your theater to be a gem in the heart of the U.S. Your staff and theater crew were all magnificent. Bravos to all of them.”

Jorge D. Perez, Administrative Director, Ensemble Español

Unparalleled in the St. Louis region, the Touhill Performing Arts Center is a focal point for education, community events, and professional performances. As a non-profit service of the University of Missouri-St. Louis, the Touhill is supported by the University, facility users, and community members like you. These resources allow the Touhill to maintain the facility and hire exceptional staff to support your favorite performance groups.

“The Touhill staff makes it such a joy to walk into the space and feel supported at all times. I am thrilled that we are partnering with you all on this project. I can’t think of any place that would be able to give us as much as you all do.”

– John Wylie, Variety Children’s Theatre

Your ticket purchases go a long way to help cover the costs of the productions you enjoy, but additional financial support is needed to maintain the quality of venue you expect for yourself
and your favorite artists. 

“We were impressed with everyone who worked with us in conjunction with The Firebird. Everyone we encountered, from your tech and stage crew to your ushers, and even to your janitorial crew, was pleasant, competent, and helpful.”

– Alexandra Zaharias, Alexandra Ballet

A gift to the Touhill will provide:

  • Students the opportunity to learn in a space that also hosts the best performers in the world.

  • The perfect setting for young children to experience the wonder of live performance.

  • A state-of-the-art venue in which local artists such as the Ambassadors of Harmony, Saint Louis Ballet, Variety Children’s Theatre, MADCO, and the Arianna String Quartet can flourish and add a significant contribution to the national cultural landscape.

  • A St. Louis home for the best visiting artists from around the country and the world through the presentations of Dance St. Louis, Touhill Presents, and the International Performing Arts Series.

“Exemplary! That is the perfect description of my experience working with both Professor of Music Matt Henry and the Touhill Staff for the Night of Percussion…the Touhill Staff was thoroughly professional and a joy to work with. After the initial “wow” factor, the students responded to this opportunity by rising to the occasion and performing brilliantly.”

– Michael D. Faris, Asst. Director of Bands, Ladue School District
