Friends of the Dramat

Without the help of our supporters, the Dramat would not be able to continue its tradition of presenting fine theater. Dramat alumni, parents of members, and New Haven residents have all become supporters. If you would like to help the Dramat fulfill its artistic and educational mission, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Yale’s largest and oldest undergraduate theater organization. All Friends of the Dramat will be listed in a special section of the program for each Dramat event during that year.

Sponsor a Show!

Show sponsorship is a way to connect more deeply with the work of a specific Dramat production. Donors sponsor a mutually agreed upon specific production of our current or upcoming season and receive personalized updates and pre-production photos of their show, messages from our casts and crews, reserved seating, and prominent crediting on the title page of the Programs. Questions about sponsorship can be directed to


Ex or First-year Show ($2,000)

These productions, which take place in either the Yale Repertory Theatre or Iseman Theater, are completely student run. This is a tremendous opportunity to support student directors and designers in creating fine theater with the best resources Yale has to offer. The Exes give Yalies the chance to try out bold artistic ideas, take on new roles, and make lifelong friends. There’s also the special opportunity to sponsor the FroShow, which is created entirely by the first year class. This sponsorship covers the entire technical budget for the show. 


Mainstage or Commencement ($4,000)

Our productions in the University Theater, the Dramat’s home since 1931, are at the heart of our mission. The Mainstages are the only opportunity Yale undergraduates have to work or act in a professionally designed & directed show. The cherished tradition of the commencement musical provides the thrill of creating a full musical in only 10 days. These shows are where Dramat students cut their teeth working on big shows in a broadway-style house. 


Planned Giving

Every year, generous alumni and friends include the Dramat in their estate plans. These gifts have gone to support student stipend programs, our Ex technical budgets, and our education programming for New Haven high schoolers. For more information about how to include the Dramat as part of your estate, contact the Vice President at
