In 2022 we're experimenting with Tickets By Donation. You may donate any amount you feel to see a Spinning Tree show. If you are unable to donate monetarily, we gladly accept your gift of time and presence. Let us entertain you. Because nothing should stop you from experiencing live theatre.

Spinning Tree Theatre provides opportunities for young artists – with disabilities and without disabilities – to collaborate with professional artists in creating, rehearsing and performing plays and musicals. We believe that all people have a right to experience and participate in the arts, and that theatre offers uniquely positive avenues for building relationships, developing creativity, and increasing confidence.
