Charitable Giving

Dear Friend, 

As you probably know, Hedgerow is a non-profit professional repertory theatre and theatre school serving over 25,000 people in the Delaware Valley each year! 

I hope you have found it a great resource, providing regular performances, children’s theatre, and a wide variety of learning opportunities for you and your entire family. If you’ve seen shows or taken classes, we certainly appreciate your support. 

Box office sales and tuition only provide about half of Hedgerow’s revenue, so we must depend upon benefactors to help us. As a patron of the arts, I’m asking you to consider being one of them.

You Make the Difference at Hedgerow All Year Long.

Thank you for your continued support of our grist mill theatre. We cannot wait to play for you again in the Hedgerows.
