Broken Nose Theatre is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, and ticket sales only account for about 50% of our annual operation budget. Even still, we are able to stage quality productions — and through our Pay-What-You-Can ticketing model, allowing patrons to set their own price — through the support of foundations, organizations, and (of course) donors like you! If you would like to learn more about how to support BNT, please contact our Managing Director Rose Hamill at rose@brokennosetheatre.com.

We would like to take this opportunity to gratefully acknowledge all those who have helped make this last year of economically accessible theatre possible:
