Friends of the Theatre

Friends of the Theatre are a pillar of support for the theatre program at Ohio State Mansfield, providing funds to underwrite the costs of performance each season. Licensing fees for the content, costumes, lighting and sound upgrades are all part of the operating costs of the theater, and this year is no different.

The arts continue to be a vital component of our lives so this season’s virtual performances are being provided at no charge to allow continued access. Your continued support as a Friend of the Theatre supports this continuity and enables us to bring the arts into our audiences’ homes.
