Ways to Give

As we reopen for indoor productions, the Provincetown Theater Foundation is especially thankful for all who donate in support of our organization. In the best of times, our ticket sales to live productions would only cover roughly half of our ongoing expenses, so your generous contributions have and will continue to be crucial to the success of our theater.


A sincere thank you to all of our generous sponsors!
