Support Our 40th Anniversary Season

Thurgood is a powerful example of what Illusion Theater does best. We believe that theater can educate us about our shared history and in doing so spark deep understanding and rich dialogue that inspires meaningful action. We are pleased to report that during a run of packed houses, over 500 high school students saw Thurgood. Sixteen community leaders joined us for robust and thought provoking post-play discussions after every show.

We invite you to join our efforts today with a gift to our 40th Anniversary Campaign in the amount of $100 or $250 or with an amount that is meaningful to you. Your support will help to ensure that we mark this milestone with strength and ensure a strong future so we can continue to carry out our mission of presenting and creating bold, visionary and thought-provoking new work as you saw in Thurgood.
