You are here

Dear Meany Friends: 

When we opened our doors again in October, we weren’t certain they’d still be open in May.

Yet here we are — thanks to the support of patrons and donors like you, whose generosity helped offset the cost of presenting live performances even as ticket sales dropped to about 60% of a pre-pandemic season.

As we recover and rebuild, we ask for your support once again. Next season we’ll reboot key outreach programs such as:

  • Free K-12 student matinees at Meany Center
  • Community access to free concerts, workshops and artist events
  • Technique classes with leading artists for UW students

In a normal season, ticket sales cover 50% of our production expenses — with not a penny towards our outreach. The last two years have been anything but normal; however, with your support, world-class performing arts at Meany Center will remain a part of our community for generations to come.



Your support in any amount makes a world of difference to Meany artists and staff partnering to keep performing arts alive.
