As a non-profit theatre organization, Actor’s Express relies on the support of kind donors and enthusiastic ticket buyers. We recognize that we may not see you for some time, but we need you more than ever. Current events have had a profound impact on the lives of our talented artists and our incredible staff. These individuals make what we do here at the Express possible. Please take a moment to make a meaningful contribution to Actor’s Express. Your donation could sustain us during this uncertain time. Theatres and other cultural organizations can provide a respite from the stresses of our uncertain world, and we build community at the times when it’s most important to band together. We hope we can count on your support so that we can be here, stronger than ever, when you’re ready and able to come back.  We look forward to seeing you again, and we can’t wait to share a new and exciting season with you. In the meantime, stay safe and don’t lose hope!
