What part will you play in our future?
There are a broad range of opportunities available for you to show your support.

To inquire about donating or for additional information on one of the funds listed, please contact Amanda Middleton at firstname.lastname@example.org or (865) 974-5654.
CBT Artist Endowment
Did you enjoy Peter Oyloe as “Hank” in Hank Williams: Lost Highway? What about the unforgettable Dale Dickey as “Mrs. Lovett” in Sweeney Todd? Donations to the CBT Artists Endowment enable us to invite theatre professionals from across the globe right to our stages and classrooms. And not just professional actors you see on stage, but professional designers, directors, and stage managers that work behind the scenes with our undergraduate and graduate students, enhancing the training of their artistic career paths in live theatre.
Theatre Enrichment Fund
You may not know that only 26% of our costs, including costumes, lighting, scenery and actor salaries, is covered by ticket sales. Donations to the Theatre Enrichment Fund ensure our ticket prices remain reasonable and accessible for all. Your support directly benefits our ongoing operational needs so we can continue to make your theatre-going experience an unforgettable one.
CBTS Scholarship Fund
From the bright-eyed freshman declaring a major in theatre to the seasoned actor taking their final bow on stage before graduating, donations to the CBTS Scholarship Fund have supported these promising students over the years. Honing their craft, whether in the costume or scene shops or on the stage, this scholarship has afforded many students the opportunity to focus on their training rather than juggling a part-time job with their studies.
