Each season Olney Theatre Center hosts a number of special events which offer donors exciting and unique opportunities, while also raising critical funds for the entire organization. We hope you will join us for one of these wonderful programs this upcoming season.


The Annual Olney Theatre Center Gala is our largest fundraising event of the year. Proceeds from this event support all areas of the organization, from our award-winning productions that entertain thousands each year, to our groundbreaking education and outreach programs that inspire people here and across the country.

Our 2020 Gala will feature musical talents of Tony-award winning actress Patina Miller. The 2020 Olney Theatre Center Annual Gala will be held on Saturday, May 16. More information on the evening can be found here. For any questions about our Gala, please contact Carlie Smith, Individual Giving Manager, at 301.924.4485 ext. 107 or


London Trip
Every year Olney Theatre Center invites donors on the trip of a lifetime! With Artistic Director Jason Loewith and Managing Director Debbie Ellinghaus leading the way, guests are treated to a behind-the-scenes theater tour of London. All of our trips include tickets to the hottest shows in London, as well as thought-provoking discussion with actors, directors, playwrights, and other industry leaders. A portion of the trip’s cost serves as a fully tax-deductible donation to Olney Theatre Center, so our guests are supporting the theatre while also enjoying a one-of-a-kind experience. Many attendees sign up for the following year’s trip as well because no two are the same!

If you would like additional information about 2020, please contact Maureen McNeill, Director of Development, at 301.924.4485 ext. 103 or
