How they are participating

For #GivingTuesday, Arena Stage will be participating in three ways:
1) Encouraging our current members to renew their annual support for another year in honor of #GivingTuesday.

2) Asking our current members to consider making an additional gift to celebrate the start of the “giving season” on #GivingTuesday.

3) Requesting non-members consider becoming a member at Arena Stage in honor of #GivingTuesday.

Arena Stage is a national center for the production, presentation, development and study of American theater.

Production
Arena Stage produces huge plays of all that is passionate, exuberant, profound, deep and dangerous in the American spirit. We have broad shoulders and a capacity to produce anything from vast epics to charged dramas to robust musicals.

Presentation
Arena Stage presents the best in American work from around the country. Presenting work allows us to showcase a diversity of American work, and to feature the work from some of the most innovative companies in the nation.

Development
Arena Stage is committed to commissioning and developing new plays, including the first, second and third productions of new works, in addition to the creation and testing of best practices for new play development through the American Voices New Play Institute.

Study
Arena Stage has a variety of programmatic initiatives in the American Voices New Play Institute and the Community Engagement department geared toward studying the field of American theater. We provide opportunities to study the art for practitioners and the audience through online and virtual resources as well as our study guides for educators, our Institute programs, our post-show discussions and symposia. In addition, Arena Stage impacts the lives of more than 20,000 students annually through its work in community engagement.
