Rough Magic Performance Company is a professional theater company focused on supporting women* artists, audiences, and stories; we strive to embrace the complexities and diversity of women’s experiences from classics to contemporary work while promoting artistic excellence and community engagement.

We know that while women make of the majority of theater audience in the Twin Cities, they are vastly under-represented in the actors, directors, designers, writers, stage managers, and crew. Rough Magic wants to change that, bringing more authenticity to women's stories and agency to women theater artists

Our 2022-23 season was our most ambitious to date and as we determine what lies ahead in 2024, we need your support to bring ambitious and woman-centric works to life: to fully realize the 2024 season, we need to raise $15,000. As an arts organization that values people over things, we set a goal that at least 70% of our annual budget goes directly to artists. Here are a few examples of what your donation will support9

  • $60 - pays for a babysitter during a rehearsal

  • $179 - pays an Equity actor’s weekly health insurance

  • $500 - buys all the costumes and props for a main-stage production

  • $15,000 - gets us all the way to our goal! Any takers?  :) 

As you can see, as an emerging organization, donations of all sizes matter! We are so grateful for all the support you’ve given us in the past, and we can’t wait for you to experience first-hand the beautiful work that you’ve made possible

Thank you so much for your support!

*Women: Rough Magic Performance Company recognizes the limiting nature of the binary use of woman. We serve and welcome anyone on the gender spectrum who identifies either always or some of the time as a woman. We also serve and welcome those who are non-binary, while recognizing that not all non-binary people identify with aspects of femininity.
