Sustain the Playhouse
The Public Theater of San Antonio announces the launch of Sustain the Playhouse, a fundraising campaign to secure and sustain the organization by the start of 2024. Like other theaters nationwide, The Public Theater has been navigating financial instability since reopening from COVID-19 pandemic closures. This hardship and shortcomings have left the theater with a financial void of crucial funding necessary to succeed. To prevent closure and layoffs, The Public Theater presiding in the San Pedro Playhouse has several efforts set in motion to save the theater.
To most theatergoers in San Antonio, the organization is affectionately known as “The Playhouse.” The Playhouse has been the home to many artists throughout its legacy, a treasured theater for the San Antonio theatre community and beyond. This campaign is an essential call to action for the community and San Antonio to show their love and dedication for the theater, to come together and save it for future generations of storytellers and theatergoers.
The next few months of this campaign are crucial. The Public Theater is calling on ALL supporters, big and small, from the past, present, and future, to dig deep and give as much as they can to the theater and secure its longevity for the future.
