Ticket sales pay for only 50% of the Hilberry's production costs. With the help of devoted theatre supporters and the generosity of grant makers we are able to close the gap and continue to excel in ways only our theatres can. Help us continue our tradition of outstanding theatre at an affordable price.
The Department of Theatre annually offers approximately 48 Graduate assistantships to the members of the Hilberry Repertory Company for their work on and in the Theatre. While the University assists this unique program, it is our individual donors who help keep the Hilberry going, growing, and financially strong.
Contributions to the Hilberry Theatre at Wayne State University qualify as an itemized tax deduction under federal law and as a tax credit under Michigan Law.
Gold Chair $300 - $499
Angel $1,000 -
Star $5,000 -
Leone Circle $10,000 and Up
