Between now and October 10th we will be raising funds to produce our next show in partnership with other nonprofits who strive to increase equity and reduce violence locally and globally.
Your support means more than ever to us during this uncertain time as we provide vital opportunities to theatre artists, adopt an anti-racist commitment, and amplify the messages of our partners.
Everyone who donates will receive the link to an encore performance of our international, live-streamed production of Oedipus the King on Saturday, October 10th at 5pm PST / 8pm EST!

Why should you give to Play Your* Part now?
Play Your* Part is innovative, nimble, and courageous. We are making live theatre now!
When facing a pandemic, rather than scrapping our next project or turning it into a reading, we chose to take on the challenge of creating a fully produced show in a digital medium. We elevated the storytelling and curated an experience as close to live theatre as we could realize.
Accessibility is at the center of our work. Everyone can participate!
Our goal is to eliminate as many barriers to participating in live theatre as possible. Tickets are always available on a sliding scale starting at $0; the spaces in which we choose to perform are ADA accessible; we continue to expand our work to engage with the deaf and hard of hearing community; and we harness technology to bring our performances to anyone with an internet connection, anywhere in the world.
We aim to support the most marginalized communities. We are more than just a theatre company ...
Our productions serve as a vehicle for us to amplify our non-profit partners' messages, all committed to increasing equity and reducing violence. Most recently, we paused pre-production on our upcoming (yet to be announced) project, in order to pivot the direction of the production, as well as the whole organization, by reimagining the concept, recasting, and rehiring to reflect the BIPOC communities who must be featured in the future work we create.
Where do your dollars go?
As a volunteer run non-profit theatre, every dollar given to Play Your* Part helps us make social-justice focused live theatre and support the artists who produce it.
In turn, our productions reach hundreds of patrons and help spread the message of our partner organizations and amplify their missions.
How else can you help?
We always need volunteers. Want to give an hour or two of your time each week, or each month, to a great cause? If you have a wifi connection and a device, no matter where you are in the world, you can help us with grant research, word of mouth advertising, or increasing our social media presence.
