Know Theatre of Cincinnati


Budget Transparency

We believe in transparency in the work that we do and the way that we create theatre. We believe in equitable theatre making, and that’s not fully possible without being open about where the money goes.

To that end, we offer you this summary of our Season 25 Budget. This season is budgeted as fully in person with live streaming access for every show.

Our total budgeted revenue and expenditures are the highest in Know Theatre history. Given audience and donor patterns since the beginning of the pandemic, this is really ambitious!

The front page gives a general overview, click on over the second sheet if you’d like more specifics. Every budget we create is a hard fought battle to determine where each dollar goes. But our guiding principle is to prioritize getting those dollars to people: the staff and artists who create the work.

Our season 26 Budget will be posted soon!
