We’re delighted to partner with the Cumberland Community Foundation on Giving Tuesday 2021.  

Our Giving Tuesday campaign is open through Wednesday, December 1st.

Your charitable contribution goes 100% toward our programming and people during this Giving Tuesday campaign. We’re delighted to partner with the Cumberland Community Foundation on Giving Tuesday 2021. Join us in making magic and gathering friends around a common table to delight in the wonder of story, song, and stagecraft. Making a gift now through December 1, 2021, at 5pm is enormously helpful to us — and receives a partial match through CCF. We’re looking to raise $6000 on our own to help set us in good shape as we close out the year. Contributions of $25 or more count toward the match.

A Giving Tuesday contribution is the single biggest way to make an impact for us as we close out the year.

With your help, we can bring magic to our communities at a time we need it most. Will you join us in making a difference?

We’re planning great indoor productions this winter and will be back in the glorious North Carolina weather this spring with new destinations, some theatrical classics and some new adventures coming to life. We can’t wait. Help us get started.

We’re changing the way money is processed on-the-go.

Our beloved Christmas event returns in person to Fayetteville.

Tickets are Pay What You Can starting at $10.

Bringing together the energy and music of Sweet Tea’s pre-show, Behold leaves audiences soaring with a heartfelt holiday celebration.

Behold is hosted by Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Fayetteville and performs at 7pm, on December 2-4, & 9-11.

Entering its 10th Anniversary year, Sweet Tea Shakespeare has built its reputation on presenting plays unconventionally, with a live radio show-style concert before the play starts, live music throughout the show, and simple, elemental, interactive staging. The concert has become one of Fayetteville’s best-kept secrets that sends hearts soaring into the holiday season. Based on music from Andrew Peterson’s Behold the Lamb of God, the Oh Hellos, and a variety of other artists, Behold leans heavily on the Gospel and folk traditions with a full band.

The event will offer holiday treats for purchase, including beer, wine, light snacks, and more.
