Be a Part of Making Bay Area Culture
The performing arts has always invited audiences to experience the world from a variety of perspectives. While we need this call to empathy now more than ever, producing this art meaningfully, with honesty, respect, and joy, requires an audience that reflects the plurality and diversity of the Bay Area – because who is in the audience matters as much as who is on stage.
We literally can’t do it without you: 60% of our production funding comes from individuals and institutions. So join us up at the Bruns. Breathe in the fresh air and the eucalyptus. Shake off the clamor of your daily life and sink into a story under a canopy of stars — when you join us, you make it possible for so many others to share in the magical and profound experience of seeing live art created in this beautiful space.
Your contributions are deeply appreciated and gratefully received. Sound and lights will get professional upgrades, patron experience will evolve to new heights, workforce development will launch, and Shakespeare – the Cal Shakes way – will grace the Bruns stage amidst a gorgeous array of live arts – music, dance, performance art and theater.
