Nov. 4: Thanks to everyone who came to a performance of Double Time during our Season 8 opening gala weekend. It was a festive start-off to our most ambitious season to date. Through the generosity of individual donors we were able to meet a $2,500 matching grant from the Western Wind Foundation, resulting in $5,000 for our theatre training program and scholarships to our graduating interns.

This season, ticket sales will cover less than half of our operating costs. We keep ticket prices low so that the greatest number of people can afford to see great theater. Please consider donating to DETC to make this our best season yet. Look for the DONATE button just to the right, above the season calendar.

All productions are at the Pearl McManus Theatre in the Palm Springs Woman's Club, 314 S. Cahuilla Rd., Palm Springs.
