Help us raise the curtain!
The generous support from our donors each year is essential in presenting a uniquely intimate immersive theatre experience. Make a contribution today to join our family of donors who share a passion for the arts and their community.
OOTB is a professional NYC theatre company doing solely site-specific immersive theatre.
We invest in our community through
Educational programs for young people
Subsidized ticket prices
Partnerships with local businesses
Community-minded programs that supplement our productions and give platforms for up and coming artists in an inclusive environment.
Looking ahead, the future that we envision for OOTB requires critical funds to invest in the development of expanded programming, continued artistic excellence and increased financial stability.
Community support is a key factor in the success of any cultural institution. At OOTB, only 30% of our annual operating expenses are met by ticket sales, with additional funds generated by grants, private donations, and sponsorships. As with all nonprofits, your support insures the long-term financial health and stability of OOTB for years to come.
Did you know that many companies offer a matching gift program that allows you to increase your philanthropic dollar, doubling or even tripling your gift to OOTB? Even better, OOTB will apply these dollars to your cumulative giving for the year, giving you increased benefits and a higher level of donor distinction! Inquire with your company's human resources department to see if your gift to OOTB qualifies for a matching gift.
OOTB strives on small business relationships. Something that makes OOTB unique is not only its dedication to providing artists and audience members a unique theatre experience, but also creating and promoting local businesses within those unique theatre experiences. Our sponsorship options range from being a social media/newsletter shoutout to a venue location for one of our Mainstage productions. To learn more please email Director of Development, Carrie Greenberg at firstname.lastname@example.org
Not all donations need to be monetary. We gladly welcome in-kind donations that we can use for upcoming productions and events (ie: costumes, props, food)
Needed items include:
*New / Gently Used Clothing
*Working Power Tools
This list is always changing! If you think you have an item that may be useful to OOTB, please feel free to contact us at your convenience and a member of our staff will help you make that assessment.
Donating in-kind gifts is as easy as dropping them off with one of our staff members. Please email Producing Artistic Director, Liz Flemming at Liz@ootbtheatrics.com to assist you with processing your contribution.
Each season dozens of volunteers log countless hours, doing everything from audience services to behind-the-scenes support. These invaluable volunteers are crucial to OOTB’s success and we’d be lost without them.
If you are interested in volunteering contact Frank Hartley, our Managing Director at Frank@ootbtheatrics.com. Please make sure to include your name, e-mail address and local telephone number in your message so he can contact you.
Areas of possible involvement include: ushering, database entry, general clerical, production, and much more!
