Help us produce works of the imagination for all!
Please join our community of supporters.
We’re dedicated to presenting adventurous, original, artist-driven work for all to enjoy. Your gift will help us:
Develop challenging productions with our core artists. We work with creators and performers to craft original, professional shows across genres that extend beyond our specialized interest in puppetry created by Michael Sommers. Open Eye has grown to be an artistic home for many artists over the years.
Work with emerging artists to discover their artistic voices. 2015 started with artists Noah Sommers Haas and Liz Schachterle creating and performing in Nothing is Something to the delight of audiences and critics. Supported with Open Eye’s collaborative team, this new work won an Ivey Award for Overall Excellence. We are committed to developing the unique voices of emerging artists with meaningful opportunities.
Strengthening communities across the Twin Cities with the Driveway Tour. The summer Driveway Tour has served the Twin Cities since 2003, bringing one-of-a-kind, delightful puppet shows to every neighborhood we visit. The demand for the Driveway Tour continues to grow and we are dedicated to creating lasting memories for families with this signature program.
Please support Open Eye Figure Theatre with your tax-deductible gift today. Your donation makes it possible for us to produce unique performances in intimate settings, building a sense of community in our beautiful jewel box theatre and in backyards and parks across the city. We look forward to sharing another wonderful year with you.
