Your Community - Your Values

Our values are powerful. They make us individuals and drive our communities to reflect our beliefs.

This GTMD, CastleCo Theatre is celebrating the shared values within the CCT community. Values like confidence, commitment, collaboration and (of course) arts education. Often times during GTMD, or other donation drives, you'll be asked to picture a community that does not honor your values - but instead, we ask you to picture a community with even more of these values. Picture a place where people of all ages can have access to various arts opportunities year-round.

Please consider contributing to our 2023 Give to the Max Day Campaign to help us create even more opportunities for community members to participate in and experience our common values!


IMPORTANT: Gifts are no longer available for November but your donation is still important to keeping the arts active in our community! Check back in early December for another possible gift give-away through end-of-the-year donations!

Donate at the levels below to earn gifts! Help us reduce shipping costs by picking up your gift at El Charro (120 Elm Street, Farmington, MN) between 4pm - 9pm on Thurs. Nov. 16 for our Dine to Donate event! Stay to eat, or pick-up food to take home, and 20% of your food and drink purchase will be donated to CCT!

Goal thermometer now reflects pledged donations!

This year, when you choose to donate to CCT through recurring (or monthly) donations, you'll see your donations for 12 months reflected in the goal thermometer! Meaning if you register to donate $25/month, the thermometer will reflect your donation as $300, since that is your combined yearly donation. (Note: It may take 24hrs for the thermometer to reflect all 12 months.)

CCT expenses for the 2023-2024 season are over $300,000; and even without productions, it costs $80,000 each year to keep CCT running? As donations grow, so does CCT!

In 2022, we stated at the bottom of our GTMD page that; 

CCT's long-term goal is to have a physical home in Farmington (or one of the surrounding communities) where we can store and build costumes and sets, hold rehearsals and workshops, and even perform! 

That goal is being partially met with the rental of a 3000 sqft rehearsal space! We are currently gauging CCT's ability to lease (or buy) an even larger space that would allow for additional rehearsal rooms, year-round classes and a small workshop. 

If you are interested in the possibility of being a lead donor in a capital campaign, to help CCT purchase a building, please email
