The programs you enjoy on the stages of Rudder Theatre and Rudder Auditorium are funded by revenue generated through ticket sales and donor contributions. Ticket sales only cover approximately 60% of our program costs. Therefore, annual contributions play an important role in the success of each OPAS season – especially this year. Please review the table below and choose the level of support that’s right for you. Donors at the Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Diamond levels ($1250 and up) have exclusive access to the VIP Donor Lounge prior to every Main Stage performance. The Donor Lounge includes light fare from Global Event Group and a cash bar. Your season donation is considered tax-deductible for IRS purposes.*
*Donors receive a lounge pass for each Main Stage season ticket package at the qualified donor level (refer to table). Additional guest passes may be purchased for $25 per person. For tax purposes, the fair market value for VIP Donor Lounge usage is $200 per person per season.
