Be a Lifeline

MSMT has set up the Lifeline Fund to help support the theatre in response to the Covid-19 cancellations and restrictions.

The MSMT Board of Trustees will generously match up to $60,000 of donations through the month of December. Your gift will now have double the impact!

As a not-for-profit arts organization, charitable contributions are vital to our mission to offer engaging, live professional performances and outreach opportunities that entertain, educate and enrich lives with power and passion. 

None of it is possible without you. And this year due to the cancellation of our 2020 season, we need you now more than ever.

Your gift will help us raise the curtain in 2021 — and until then, it will provide the critical funding of resources to support MSMT staff and programs as we prepare for 2021 shows – sets, costumes, technology and maintaining the level of professionalism you have come to expect from our company. We also need to recruit technicians, actors, and Educational Fellows for the next season, and continue to build relationships with our donors, subscribers, patrons, advertisers, and sponsors.

Through careful fiscal planning we have been able to cut almost $3 million from our over $5 million budget and we have been able, through the generous donations from many patrons and sponsors, to salvage a portion of our income for this summer. But, we still need to recoup nearly $1.5 million to stay strong through this loss and bring you a vibrant 2021 season and beyond.

Help continue our memories and be a Lifeline Today.


For the rest of 2020, an individual will be able to deduct up to $300 and couples can deduct up to $600, irrespective of whether or not they itemize their deductions. This “above the line” deduction can be used for contributions only of cash (not stock) to qualified charitable organizations.

This tax break took effect in 2020, so you will claim the break when you file your 2020 return.
