OPENING NIGHT DONATION
The first performance of a theatrical production is a very special time and what better way to celebrate opening night than by supporting the charity that helps members of the theatre community bounce back from adversity?
A gift to The ABF on opening night is a great way to acknowledge your Company or someone whose work has helped to get you there.
To ensure that your greeting makes it to the theatre in time, please submit your opening night donation at least one business day before opening night.
