Join us in creating great theatre. Our donors play a vital role in keeping the doors open!

Son of Semele Ensemble has been acknowledged in national publications as a theatrical force to be reckoned with, and locally SoSE has garnered acclaim and critical praise for cutting edge work. We produce beautiful and elaborate productions. We pay our artists and designers. Through SoSE Host and our two festivals we open our theatre to fellow artists who also push the envelope. And we are always challenging ourselves to produce ever more innovative and powerful works.

Theatre like this requires outside support.

About 40% of our income is from ticket sales. The rest has to be raised from donors and grants. That is why we turn to you. Your generous support helps us keep the lights on, both figuratively and literally!
