To show our appreciation for the generous gifts we receive, OCT provides fun benefits and gifts to our donors and their families.

Contact Us

Everyday heroes like you help us create a community where all children and families have opportunities to learn and grow through theater and the arts. Your support makes it possible for us to offer one third of our programming at no cost to those from low income and underserved communities. To say thank you, all Oregon Children’s Theatre donors receive these special benefits:

Theatre Amenities

Come to any of our main stage season performances with your donor hero card to receive the following gifts and benefits:

* A show poster signed by the actors to take home and keep.
* Complimentary coat check and booster seats for your family.
* A special gift related to the show.

Backstage Tour

Supporters can schedule a behind-the-scenes tour of the Newmark Theatre before a show and give friends and family the unique opportunity to see what happens behind the stage.

Special Events

We host several events throughout the season to give donors an inside look into the theater and show how their gift is making a difference. It’s a wonderful chance to meet the artists and staff, connect with OCT friends, and learn more!

Tech Dinners

Dinner and a show! Join OCT for dinner and drinks downtown, then head to the theater for a behind-the-scenes rehearsal where the set, lights, sound, and actors come together for the first time!

Contributor Acknowledgment

All donors who make cumulative gifts of $100 or more in one year are recognized in each of our main stage playbills and online for a whole season. Tell us how you would like to be acknowledged!

Birthday Salute

Supporters have the opportunity to include the names of their loved ones in our birthday salute, which is printed in the show playbills.

Tailored Benefits

Benefits can be tailored to meet the unique philanthropic goals of our major donors and production sponsors. For gifts of $2,000 or more, production and program sponsorships are available. Please contact Jessy Friedt at 503-228-9571 ext 114 or to learn more.
