    Keep Magic going for 54 more years!

    For 53 years, Magic Theatre has sought and supported theatre’s freshest playwrights who bravely tackle difficult subjects, sharing the essential narratives of our time. The current health crisis is having a profound impact on theater, and we need your help more than ever. At Magic, writers are given a rare artistic home, an extension of faith, and the tools and time to carefully craft their stories. Since 2008, Magic has produced twenty-six world premieres, twenty-one of which have enjoyed extended life beyond the Magic stage throughout the U.S. and abroad. 

    With the arts at risk it has been incredibly difficult to maintain operating costs. As a Magic supporter, you are an essential part of continuing to create an invaluable artistic home for infamous playwrights such as Sam Shepard, Taylor Mac, Linda McLean, Mfosnio Udofia, Lloyd Suh, Christina Anderson, Octavio Solis, Theresa Rebeck, and Nassim Soleimanpour. 

    Not only does your support have a national impact, but you would be supporting the rich Bay Area community as well. Your support will allow us to keep up our collaboration with Laney Community College students, our hands-on Apprenticeship Programs, and our writers education program for children, teens, and adults in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood. Our community program, Making Magic: Arts and Community brings our mainstage work and special collaborations to the heart of the Tenderloin for free performances and classes which continues to build on Magic’s decades of new play writing expertise. By focusing our curriculum on teaching mindfulness, self-esteem, creative storytelling and playwriting, Magic seeks to build passion and confidence, and encourages self-expression in our students of all ages. 

    In these challenging times we need the new voices and stories Magic brings us more than ever.

    For these daring voices to be heard and the next generation of writers to be nurtured, Magic needs your support.

    About Magic Theatre

    Now in its 53rd year, Magic Theatre is dedicated to the cultivation of bold new plays, playwrights, and audiences -- and to producing explosive, entertaining, and ideologically robust plays that ask substantive questions about, and reflect the rich diversity of the world in which we live. Magic believes that demonstrating faith in a writer's vision by producing a safe yet rigorous artistic home, where a full body of work can be imagined, supported, and produced, allows writers to thrive. Known for producing the famous work of Sam Shepard (Buried Child, True West, Fool for Love), Luis Alfaro (Oedipus el Rey, Bruja [Mohada]), Taylor Mac (HIR, Lily’s Revenge). Magic has continued to have an invaluable impact on the theatrical community, seeing our world premieres go on to have productions all over the globe.
