For 85 years, The Old Globe has been central to the cultural and civic lives of San Diego.​

When our stages were closed by war or destroyed by fire, we continued to make theatre as the community rallied to bring the Globe back, better than ever. Today we are one of the nation’s great theatre companies, creating sublime productions that bring joy and laughter, that connect us to each other, and that remind us of our common humanity.

The coronavirus pandemic has brought great change to our world. But some things remain constant: the sun still rises, the earth still turns, and The Old Globe is still at work.

The Globe is responding to this period of upheaval with energy, adaptation, and innovation. We are developing new ways to deliver theatre programs online. We remain committed to serving our community and staying engaged with our supporters. We are planning a reopening worthy of this great institution. One day soon, you will again be with us to see the plays and experience the programs you cherish.

But until then, with our productions postponed and major source of revenue suspended, we need your help. With your support, we will all keep the GlobeRISING.

We are delighted to announce a new challenge. An anonymous donor has just pledged $500,000 to the Globe if we can raise another $500,000 in new or increased gifts by December 31, 2020. If you’ve already given to the Globe this year, please consider an additional gift. If you haven’t yet renewed your gift from last year, please renew and increase your gift. And if you’ve never contributed to the Globe before, there has never been a better time to do so.

Thanks to your generosity and belief in the power of theatre art, we will continue to employ as many staff members as possible, reach hundreds of thousands of people with our online programs, and devise dozens of innovative new ways to make theatre matter.

At the core of why The Old Globe exists is a mission to empower people. Theatre is an irreplaceable means of fostering connection, empathy, and beauty in the world. Thank you for helping us rise during these challenging time.
