Ensemble depends on gifts from the community all year long to help subsidize ticket prices, fund education outreach programs and support artistic freedom. Your tax-deductible donation makes a tremendous impact on the theater. Even in “normal” times, ticket sales accounted for only 40% of what it takes to create our productions. In these times, donations are key to ensuring live theater will live on in Santa Barbara.
