Become a Partner

The Public Theater Partners are made up of a dedicated group of individuals whose contributions are vital to advancing our mission of providing accessible art for all. Partners receive insider access to The Public Theater including backstage experiences, exclusive Partner talkbacks, dinners, and cocktail evenings, reserved seats at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, and complimentary tickets for our downtown season.  Under 40? Explore our Young Partner Program!

Because of the generous contributions from people like you, we are able to offer thousands of tickets to Free Shakespeare in the Park every year, for free. This year, your contributions can help us even more.

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation will match every new or increased contribution, – and then double it, tripling your impact.*

Join the Mellon Match today and keep Shakespeare in the Park Free for all, all summer, every summer.
