Support CTE!

Play a Part: YOU can make a difference. Did you know…

Most people don’t realize that ticket sales and participation fees cover less than half of CTE’s yearly budget. Donations from friends like YOU account for the other half along with grant contributions, making it possible for us to provide high-quality programming and educational opportunities for young people, regardless of their financial situation. Your generosity can make a big difference in the lives of those who see and perform in our productions. Any amount is appreciated and all donors will be listed below. Thank you so much!Donate today!
