KEEP THE WAGON WHEEL ROLLING

Dear Friends of the Wagon Wheel,

For over 60 years, Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts has inspired our community with Broadway quality performances at a fourth of the Broadway price. But we cannot create or achieve success without YOU. Ticket sales only cover half of the cost to produce our shows and keep the theatre doors open. We need you, our loyal friends and patrons, to keep us rolling so the Wagon Wheel can continue to educate and entertain generations to come.

When making a charitable donation, we believe it is important to know that your gift will be used to benefit the needs of the theatre and our community.

A gift to Wagon Wheel does just that by assisting us to:

  • Provide high-quality performances that entertain patrons and tourists to our community. Your donation helps us continue to scout and hire the best and brightest stars for our summer season!
  • Foster social connections and vibrant community culture that helps make Warsaw, IN a better place to live, play, and work. Our work catches the eye of new businesses, helps attract and retain residents, and draws more tourists to our community. Your donation provides us with means of upgrading our facility to make it more appealing to our visitors and patrons like you.
  • Offer educational programs for youth with low cost barriers. With donations like yours, we will be able to continue to provide free or low cost youth programs to over 6,000 students in our community.
  • Give back to your community to help it grow and prosper! Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts gives back to other nonprofits and our community through ticket sales, ticket donations, and free events each year. Your donations make this possible!

Thank you for your interest in donating to Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts. Your support of our programs and presence in the community means a great deal to us – thank you!

Kindest Regards,

The staff, crew, and board at Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts.
