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, and so your generous contributions have been and continue to be more crucial to us now than ever before.

We hope you will share in our desire to uphold the necessity of the performing arts here in Provincetown by making a gift to our thriving cultural beacon, this historic institution serving the one-of-a-kind residents at the very tip of Cape Cod.

The fastest way to support the Provincetown Theater Foundation! Your one-time gift today will ensure that the show WILL go on! The Provincetown Theater is a 501(c)(3) non-profit institution and all donations made to us are fully tax-deductible.
