Help rebuild Venice Theatre after Hurricane Ian

Venice Theatre and its staff have dedicated over 70 years to not only engaging thousands of audience goers but also supporting actors both locally and from across the world as well as young artists in their growth. By creating a space where all artists can thrive, they have propelled thousands of artists into the professional theatre world while providing a family environment to welcome all those who step through their doors.

The Sarasota, Bradenton, and Venice area is known for its strong arts community. Yesterday, due to Hurricane Ian, that community took a deep hit when Venice Theatre had catastrophic damage to their theatre. The building is destroyed. They will need all the help they can get from the community near and far.

For all Venice Theatre has done for us, it's time for us to give back. Any funds that are raised here will go to help them directly in their rebuilding endeavors.

A theatre is not a building, a theatre is a community. And this community will continue to grow with your support.

For more information on direct donations and more info as their rebuilding process begins, please check out their website here:

We encourage everyone to share their Venice Theatre stories and allow for this page to not only heal but also light the fire we all feel when we walk through their doors and onto their stages.

Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or to share your stories.

TheatreLives will be sharing other ways to give as the opportunities arise and be contacting various corporations for continued support.
