Annual Fund – Donor Programs

Sponsor an Artist

CSC is the only theatre in Cincinnati to employ a resident ensemble of 15-20 artists. Artists come from all over the U.S. and Canada and many end up making Cincinnati a long-term home. You can sponsor an ensemble member, a group of artists or a member of CSC’s production team – costume designers, set and lighting artisans or stage and production managers. Artist Sponsorships are for the length of the season and start at $1000. You will enjoy on-site recognition and other special benefits to enhance your CSC experience.

Rose Club

The Rose Club is for CSC donors that are connected by a common interest in Shakespeare and his plays. Members of The Rose Club will be asked to make an annual donation of $500 or more to help support the development of future Shakespeare productions, signature cycles, history series and/or new classics that are Shakespeare based.

Special programs, events with artists, Rose Club Receptions and communications will be made available to members of The Rose Club throughout each season.

Belles of the Bard

Belles of the Bard is a membership program for women who are wild for Cincinnati Shakespeare Company. During the Debut Season at The Otto M. Budig Theater, Belles of the Bard will help sponsor one production. Members will enjoy special behind-the-scenes access to see how the play is brought to life with tours of our costume and set design studios, a meet and greet with artists in the cast and a special back stage Belles of the Bard party with the director of the show. 

You can join Belles of the Bard for a donation of $1000 or more.
