Coronavirus/COVID-19 Consequence: 

Emergency Funds Needed

Following the recommendations of the CDC, MN Dept of Health, and City of Rochester - live performances are cancelled until further notice. 

Help Save The Theatre!


Dear Friends,

The Rochester Civic Theatre is in an extremely vulnerable financial position due to the Coronavirus Pandemic that has now been hitting our great community.

The restraints that have been mandated have caused us to cancel our entire production run of Romeo & Juliet, and further refrain us from holding auditions and starting rehearsals for our final show of the season.

We are in dire need of financial help of donations from family, friends, community members, volunteers and local companies and organizations.  The show MUST go on, and in order to do that, we are reaching out for help.

Donate Now

An emergency donation will assist us in being able to come back from this pandemic restraint with the ability to financially recover, and give the community the amazing programming of education, production of live theatre, music and dance.

Nobody planned on this pandemic to occur and financially put us in such a desperate position.

You have shown us that you want the Rochester Civic Theatre here and so we are asking you, please donate now.  There is nothing like the excitement, inspiration and joy on the faces of all of our community and patrons when enjoying and participating in our arts programming.

Donate Now!

With Deep Appreciation,

Sinead Chick,                           Daniel Zeller,
Director of Operations            Director of Events and Patron Experience
