Unforgettable Characters. Extraordinary Stories.


It’s you.
You’re the reason that SLO REP exists. You’re the reason our shows continue to inspire, challenge and entertain, consistently performing to sold-out or near-capacity audiences. You’re the reason our ACT educational programs are thriving, reaching over 250 children every year.

YOU are indispensable to the continuing success of this theatre.

Ticket sales cover only a little more than half of our budget. Your gifts — in any amount — are the most important piece of this amazing puzzle called live theatre. Your gift today will ensure the continued growth and success of live theatre in San Luis Obispo, now and into our very exciting future.

4 Ways to Give

General Fund Donation
Your gift supports the general fund that makes live theatre possible in downtown San Luis Obispo. You are building the sets, stitching the costumes, compensating our fabulous actors and helping to keep our ticket prices affordable.

ACT Fund Donation
Your gift supports the year-round educational programs provided by SLO REP’s Academy of Creative Theatre. Over 300 students, ages 5-18 participate in our camps, classes and ACT productions every year. Your generous donations help to pay our teachers, coaches and directors and help to keep tuition costs affordable for young families.
