COVID19 - "I Care" Campaign
These are very difficult moments for Rattlestick - as they are for most theaters. We have suspended performances to The Siblings Play, and we do not know when we will be able to gather in our theater in the near future.


However, now more than ever, we are committed to our mission, artists, and our community. To that end, we are introducing COVID19 - " I Care" Campaign to underwrite our online programming that will center on artistic sharing and community conversations.


Your donation to the COVID19 "I Care" Campaign will help us further our work of using theatrical expression to provide care for our communities. This at-home screening purchase and donation will support Rattlestick and help us in our mission to remain a vibrant cultural organization once this turbulent period is behind us.


Rattlestick Productions, Inc. is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organization. Contributions made to Rattlestick are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Thank you for being a crucial part of our Theater.


In Solidarity,


Rattlestick Playwrights Theater

Stick With Us Program in Quarantine
We want to thank you sincerely for being a member of Rattlestick Playwrights Theater through our milestone 25th Anniversary Season and the challenges of the past five months.

Now more than ever we need your support to produce unique, proactive, and courageous projects that respond to the complexity of our culture.
