Kids Need the Arts and We Need You
Donor Support Levels
Donors who give between $2,500-$9,999 help support higher level planning and programming that links our mission & values .
For example, support for our newly developed community outreach program and seasoned education outreach program provides several flexible and easy-to-implement specialized workshops and residency programs. The majority of our outreach work focuses on student populations in underserved communities, who attend schools with a 60% or higher free or reduced lunch percentage.
We are still in rebuild mode and ticket sales alone do not cover the costs of our productions and outreach programs. Without Angel Supporters providing gifts of $25,000, $50,000, $100,000, and more – our work to entertain and inspire thousands of children and families would not be possible.

“My students had so much fun using their body movements to tell stories along with the fun song. Thank you so much for providing such fun and engaging programming to get the kids (and the teacher!) moving and laughing.”

Your Donation At Work!
This past season we invited over 4,000 adults and children back to in-person outdoor theatre through our productions of Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive the Bus at California Shakespeare Theatre and two other Bay Area locations. The Imaginaries (an original musical) opened to sold-out audiences and reached nearly 6,000 adults and children through this one-of-a-kind theatrical experience that marked BACT’s 100th production! In our current season, we are offering some family favorites: Llama Llama, Elephant and Piggie, A Year With Frog and Toad, and more!
Academy Premier Theatre Training
Our Academy Studio is a dedicated home for our award-winning Advanced Performers program and our extensive theatre education classes and camps. Serving nearly 400 students our Academy also offers a robust scholarship program holding two-five spots per class/camp for scholarship recipients. We have been able to grant 100% of all scholarship requests to families who need the support.
As educators continue to face a mountain of obstacles this school year it is important that providing in-school theatre arts programming is not one of them. All BACT community outreach programs are 100% free to schools and educators. We reached nearly 17,000 students in grades K-8th this last school year by providing several flexible and easy-to-implement specialized workshops and residency programs and we are on track to reach 25,000 students this school year. BACT is focused on introducing children of all backgrounds to the excitement of theatre and ensuring every child has access to arts education.
