Please read this personal appeal from Artistic Director, Elizabeth McKoy

UPDATE:  Help us meet our $10,000 Challenge Grant! 

An anonymous donor will  give us $10,000 if we can raise the additional $10,000 in donations.  What does that mean?  We are so close, we just need to raise another $400 more to meet the goal.  Please help!

Dear Berkeley Playhouse Community,

Do you remember the first time you went to the theater?

The anticipation as the lights dim, and the orchestra begins playing…

the roar of laughter from those around you as the first humorous moment unfolded… 
the tune that rattled around in your head until you found yourself humming it as you stepped out of the theatre.
The fun, the joy, the connection you felt with the people you came with.

It’s quite a memory, isn’t it?

In this increasingly fast-paced world of gadgets and gizmos, of YouTube clips and on-demand everything, creating family memories becomes more and more precious. For over five years, Berkeley Playhouse has been a haven for families to spend time together, to engage in an experience that everyone can enjoy at the same time – from great-grandparents to toddlers.

Won’t you help us create more? Please consider making a gift of to Berkeley Playhouse this year.I believe one of Berkeley Playhouse’s greatest achievements is the number of families who make us their first live musical theatre experience. New audience member or returning, we create thousands of memories each year.

If you can, that gift will actually be worth twice as much as we are fortunate to have an anonymous donor who wishes to match all donations up to $10,000. Please help us reach our $10,000 goal.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read and consider this request.


Artistic Director, Berkeley Playhouse
