Know Theatre of Cincinnati


We make theatre. You make it possible.

Know Theatre is a not-for-profit professional theatre company, with big ideas and a small budget.

That means your gifts make a big impact and keep innovative, cutting-edge theatre that is welcoming to all in Cincinnati.

Your support lets us secure the rights to scripts you can’t see anywhere else, cast ensembles of astonishing local and guest-artist talent, pay our spectacular MainStage artists a living wage for their work, and keep ticket prices affordable for all.

BREAKING NEWS: Now, thru October 31, you can double the impact of your gift, thanks to a Challenge Grant from Judge Mark P. Painter (Ret)! See details of this amazing opportunity below.
