It takes a village

As the Sandhills’ Own Professional Theatre Company, the Uprising Theatre Company’s purpose is to bring the highest level of artistic achievement, and educational experience to all who live, work and play in the area.

Each year, we are proud to present the annual Shakespeare in the Pines Festival--under the stars, amidst the pines in Pinehurst’s Tufts Park. But we are most gratified to be able to offer Free General Admission, so all may enjoy high-quality, family-friendly theatre in this magical setting.

To do so, we rely entirely on donations for the production of the two-weekend long Festival.

Will you help us continue to keep Free theatre, Free?

By donating, you will do a lot more than just make a delightful performance in the park possible for all to enjoy. You will also:

  • Play a crucial part in bringing Shakespeare’s venerated work to our community, enriching cultural lives, and broadening perspectives;
  • Help us create exciting opportunities for theatre actors, designers, directors, and technicians, both locally and nationally; and
  • Allow us to continue to offer educational out-reach programs to local high school and college students providing programs that will give them hands-on experience and the skills to better pursue their artistic passions.

Any contribution in any amount will further our mission of bringing high-level professional theatre to the Sandhills community. As we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization, your contributions will be tax-deductible. Thank you!
