Become a Friend

GypsyGreat things are possible with your help – become a Friend of the Theatre! 

Did you know that, on average, college revenue, subscription sales and ticket sales only provide a portion of our annual production budget? 

Did you know that all expenditures relating to improving student experiences, post-graduate opportunities for our majors, and even special renovation projects are funded solely by our donors?  

Friends of the Theatre donors have a direct impact on the students, faculty and staff of the Department of Theatre and Dance.  

Here are some of the ways Annie’s Friends have helped:

  • State of the art lighting and sound equipment, installation completed summer 2010
  • New dance floor for our annual Rollins Dance concert, debuted in March 2010
  • Scholarships for theatre students to attend South Eastern Theatre Conference, allowing for graduate school and internship auditions
  • Recruiting activities, educating new and talented high school students from around the state  about the value of a Rollins theatre education
  • Upgraded equipment in the Scene Shop for safer and more efficient tools used for training and set-building

This is only a sampling of all the things our Friends have allowed us to accomplish!

As we continue to improve and grow, meeting the changing needs of theatre professionals, our own needs continue to evolve.  Make a lasting impression on a student’s life-long education.
