Become a Friend of the Herberger Theater

Since 1989, the Herberger Theater has brought the magic of live performing arts to hundreds of thousands of people, including children. Our programs are truly the heart of the Herberger Theater. They spark and stimulate imagination, encourage confidence and create possibilities for all to explore the arts.

The arts can also transport us to a different world, give us a new perspective on familiar issues, and help us empathize with others. Providing an inclusive experience is at the core of the Herberger Theater’s mission: giving every person access to the arts. We don’t want a single person to be excluded from the Herberger Theater community for financial or logistical reasons. That’s why our programs are designed to make live performances available at no cost or low cost to the community.

Your gift will provide arts experiences for:

Children – Our arts education programs such as Wolf Trap, Arizona Young Artists’ Competition and Theater Camp bring the joy of artistic engagement to underserved youth, including preschoolers in low-income communities and homeless and abused teens living in group homes and shelters.

Older Adults – Our Lunch Time Theater makes live performances available at a low cost with performances held during the day. The program showcases the work of diverse and emerging theater companies with one-act plays, featuring local artists and performing companies.

Our Community – Free programming like Performance Pop-Ups, First Friday Live, Art Exhibits, and Festival of the Arts celebrate the diverse cultural heritage of our community, providing meaningful experiences while making the arts accessible to all.

Our programs educate, entertain and inspire audiences of all ages!

Please make your tax-deductible contribution TODAY and help us continue to provide these crucial arts experiences for years to come. Your gift to the Herberger Theater will help nurture a strong and vibrant cultural community and help our programs to flourish.
