Future Stages


This moment in our ongoing story presents a unique opportunity for donors and supporters to be part of NCTC’s bold, ambitious, promising future.

NCTC invites you to join us in the Future Stages initiative by committing to increased and/or multi-year giving. Multi-year gifts – in the form of pledges and/ or statements of intention – entitle you to the established donor benefits & programs, such as the Producers Circle. They carry the added advantage of allowing NCTC to spend more time and focus on making art and deepening your engagement with our work. By joining us in our Future Stages initiative you will join the leading supporters of NCTC, providing the sustained funding needed to enable NCTC to better plan, thrive, and deliver in its distinctive role as the region’s foremost theatrical voice for arts education and the Queer & Allied community.
