Support Us

As the oldest continuously operating theatre in America and a National Historic Landmark, the Walnut stands as a cultural beacon to those who love history, culture, and the performing arts. To keep the future bright for the next generation of theatre-goers, the Walnut is active in our community through award-winning arts education programs. While school budgets leave culture behind, America's Oldest Theatre comes down from the stage to interact with more than 172,000 students, educators, and families each year!

Your tax-deductible contribution helps keep our artistic standards high onstage and provides meaningful support for all of the Walnut's education programs.
