Please help keep us afloat.

Producing professional shows for free is not without its challenges. Though we continue to hustle, the reality is our organization is in desperate need of financial support. Our free admission is an important cornerstone of who we are, but is becoming increasily difficult to uphold in today’s world.


Last years season saw our average donation per head at $5. When compared to a Broadway ticket at $135/head, or $223.00 per season subscription for our neighbors at PA Shakespeare in Center Valley, I’m sure you'll agree what we’re pulling off is an unsustainable feat.


This is why we need your help. Your donations help put the thread in our needles to sew costumes, bulbs in our lights to illuminate the stage and pay the costs of licensing musicals both familiar and new. Please make a donation to help this 13 year tradition stay alive.

Donating is made safe and secure,

thanks to our friends at Paypal.

Become a Corporate Sponsor

Are you a business owner or do you work for an organization that could help keep us alive? We're not just looking for financial donations... gifting services, equipment and other assets is invaluable to an organization like Scranton Shakes.

  • The Marketplace at Steamtown gifted us The Shakes Space.

  • Center City Print donates our Printing Services

  • The University of Scranton provides us housing all summer long.

Please contact us at to discuss potential partnerships. You can also view our corporate brochure by clicking below.

Become a Season Donor

Not only can you make a one-time tax-deductible donation, but you can make an even bigger impact by giving monthly in small (or large) amounts. The price of a coffee once a month? $5. How about a sandwich? $13. Could you do a dinner... $25. Your monthly dollars will make a difference.

When you make a one-off donation of $25+, or a monthly donation of $5+ you'll become a summer season donor. Our season donors get access to a number of perks each summer and are truly at the heart of our organization. Take a look at what you could be entitled to each summer by clicking below.
