DETC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Ticket sales cover only a portion of our production expenses. Your tax-deductible contributions help us to keep prices low, making theatre affordable for all. They also help to fund two college scholarships at the end of each season, awarded to our hardworking high school theatre interns who are moving on to higher education. Please consider making a gift today. Look for the DONATE button just above the calendar to the right.
