Click here to read a letter to Angels from School of Theater Chair, Natalie Sowell.

Becoming a Theatre Angel means supporting the role of The School of Theatre and emerging artists at UNC Greensboro. As a Theatre Angel, you will be funding The North Carolina Theatre for Young People’s work with underserved K-12 students in our community, the School of Theatre seasons, the sets you see onstage, our guest artists, and our curriculum.

Additionally, as stated by School of Theatre Director, Natalie Sowell,

We are intentionally and urgently reconsidering the guest artists we bring to campus, our hiring processes, the production season, and our curriculum in order to create a more equitable, diverse and inclusive learning environment rooted in anti-racist and anti-bias pedagogical practices. This year we invite you to contribute to this effort. The Musical Theatre Program is commissioning 4 “Mini Musicals” for production in Spring 2021. The writers of these pieces will come from groups too often marginalized on the Musical Theatre Stage: BIPOC, Female, LGBTQ+, and Gender Nonconforming.

By viewing contemporary stories through the lens of these writers, we hope to elevate their experiences and allow their voices to help guide the discussions that are taking place in the School of Theatre. This project gives our students important performance experience (in a safe way during the pandemic) and allows us to continue our focus on new works. If your commitment aligns with the over 85,000 people who have signed the We See You White American Theatre petition demanding change for BIPOC theatremakers, please donate generously to bring this project to life.

Tickets are not connected to the membership levels below, so we hope that Theatre Angels will purchase individual tickets or an affordable subscription in addition to supporting the School of Theatre through a generous contribution. To see our Theatre Angel membership categories and the perks that members receive, please scroll down this page. Donations to the Theatre Angels Fund are fully tax deductible. You will receive a letter from Advancement in recognition of your donation.

Maintaining your Theatre Angels Membership and Recognition:

Theatre Angels membership records are updated once at the beginning of each season when the first show program is published in early September. An annual appeal for donations to the Theatre Angels Fund will be sent out in August or earlier via email and mail. To be recognized in show programs or on the website (depending on membership level), you must make your Theater Angel Fund donation before the first show program is printed in early September.

You can also make your Theatre Angels Fund donation in response to the annual appeal using the “Donate Now” button above. You can become a Theatre Angel later in the season and receive most of the benefits listed above, but you will not receive recognition in the show programs or website once the first show program has been printed.

Donating to specific theatre scholarships or theatre endowments does not confer Theatre Angels membership. To be a Theatre Angel, you must donate to the “Theatre Angels Fund.”

If you have questions about the Theatre Angels membership program, please contact Josh Ritter, Lecturer/Theatre Manager, at jsritter@uncg.edu.
