support to bridge the gap between program expenses and ticket revenue. Your gift will
help us continue to produce a wide variety of rich high-quality programming.

for over 40 years. Your gift will support our courses and workshops, which focus on
skill building and creative exploration and are taught by professional artists and experienced teachers.
Discovery Theater, Smithsonian Associates' live theater for children since 1979, provides high-quality
programming to more than 50,000 children, their parents, teachers, and schools each year. Your gift
