Creative theatre is only possible because of people like you who commit to the future of theatre. Your belief in ESP helps us keep theatre accessible to all.
We thank you!
As a nonprofit theatre who believes in 'Radical Hospitality' - a term coined by the Minnesota theatre community around keeping theatre ticket pricing low. We've taking it literally to mean radically increasing accessibility by removing social and economic barriers to attendance. One such way is to have all our shows "pay-what-you-can" for every performance, every time!
From our very beginnings, we have had "pay-what-you-can" pricing for all our readings and mainstage events. In 2020, we added that pricing to our youth theatre productions. All our classes and workshops have two price options: General and Half Price Need. Attendees pick whichever price best suits their abilities. Anyone can also request a "pay-what-you-can" scholarship for all our education programs.
Radical Hospitality means understanding that life and finances can ebb and flow and our pay-what-you-can class ticketing requires no paperwork because we trust our patrons.
Your support means we can continue to create top quality theatre!
