Give to the Max Day 2016 is upon us!


It’s that most wonderful, givetastic time of the year again, Give to the Max Day! This year it falls on November 17th and it’s the day that your charitable donations to Minnesota non-profits go a lot farther.

This year is no exception for Theatre Pro Rata as once again we are receiving a $3500 matching grant for all donations received. That means that every dollar you give will count twice toward helping us make critically acclaimed theater on a small budget. In addition, every donation made on the Give to the Max website enters Pro Rata for a chance to win a bonus $1,000, $5,000, or even $10,000! So give early and often.

A new feature at GiveMN this year also allows you to give a little bit extra to cover Give to the Max’s processing costs. So if you can, please consider adding on to your gift to #CoverTheFee. Conversely, you can also donate through the PayPal link on our donation page which takes a smaller fee out.

Thanks in advance, we look forward to seeing you at the theatre.

Support the Presidents!

It’s election season and that means doing your civic duty. No, we’re not just talking about voting, it’s also time to Support the Presidents! Our production of 44 Plays for 44 Presidents – The Second Term is coming up fast and we need your help.

Just as freedom isn’t free, neither is a theatrical production. Show your love of country and theater by donating to Theatre Pro Rata today!

Type the name of a President to “vote” for in the box below, then click the button to donate $25 and Support the Presidents! The first 44 people to donate will receive a random button with the nickname of one of the Presidents on it. Impress your friends! Make your political rivals jealous!

44 Plays for 44 Presidents runs one weekend only culminating in a special Election Night performance! Come see some great theater and cheer on democracy!

If one play about political machinations isn’t enough for you, we’re also opening Henry V on the same weekend… also performing at the brand new Crane Theater!

The Audience Survey of the Burning Pestle

University of Texas, Austin graduate student Deb Streusand is researching The Knight of the Burning Pestle and is collecting audience reactions to our production as part of her studies. If you’ve seen the Pro Rata production of the play please consider taking a moment to answer this brief survey to help out. Thank you!
