The Abbey Theatre is a registered charity that doesn’t receive any government or local authority subsidy. We rely entirely on our audiences and supporters to keep us going.

So thank you, those that do help out ­– and we really can’t say that often enough.

By supporting us, you’re helping out the St Albans and district community in lots of different ways. You’re not just helping people see productions, you’re helping people be part of a group. (There are hundreds of people who help the theatre in all kinds of ways, most of whom you’ll never see on stage.)

Your support will also help young people in the area learn some impressive life skills by being part of productions. Our two youth organisations, the Company of Teens and St Albans Youth Music Theatre, have been important to generations of children and young adults. Many members have gone on to work professionally in theatre and film.

You’ll also help support a building that is used by many other theatrically minded organisations to inspire children of all ages, some with special needs.

Plus, you’ll be helping us raise funds for other local charities (all our productions have a ‘Charity Night’) and support events such as Grace’s Night, a free, annual performance for a specially invited, and extremely appreciative, audience.

You can also buy Abbey Theatre gift vouchers online, redeemable against all productions.

We think that these vouchers are ideal for occasions such as birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries and Mothers’ Day. They’re valid for twelve months from the date of delivery.
