Play a Part in Our Success

As a professional not-for-profit theatre, PTC relies on the support of our friends and patrons. Ticket sales earn a large portion of our budget—nearly 70%—but the remaining 30% must come from contributions.

When you make your gift to Pioneer Theatre Company, your support makes it possible for us to bring an exceptional theatre experience to all Utah audiences.

Where does PTC get its revenue and how is it spent?


There are many costs associated with producing outstanding professional theatre. When you give to Pioneer Theatre Company, 71 percent of your gift directly supports artistic and production personnel and the creation of the stunning sets and costumes that make our productions so exciting. Pioneer Theatre Company employs the best actors, directors, and designers in the country so we can produce theatre of the highest artistic quality. Your gift also supports our New Plays Initiative and Student Matinee Program.

PTC generates more than $2.8 million annually from ticket sales.  While this represents 64 percent of our annual income, an important piece of the theatre’s revenue comes from contributions. Notably, our individual donors are the single largest source of privately contributed funds. The generosity of our donors ensures we provide the best theatre experience possible. This is why your support is so important to the success of Pioneer Theatre Company.
