Due to the quality and success of Main Street Theater's programming and its popularity with theater-lovers, teachers, students, children, and families, our ticket sales, class tuition, and fund-raising from special events make up 70-80% of our income. For the remaining 20-30% MST relies upon the help of contributions from foundations, corporations, government sources, and individuals who make personal contributions to the theater.
Honor an Individual
Additionally, we welcome contributions made in honor or memory of individuals. This is a special way to recognize a friend or loved one. We will list your commemoration in our playbill for one year in a designated section and send the recipient or their family notification of this donation.
After you’ve made your donation you’ll be directed to a page where you can list the name of your honoree and how you would like your own name listed.
For more information on how you can become a MST Donor please contact Shannon Emerick at 713-524-3622 or firstname.lastname@example.org and ask how you too can support MST.
Main Street Theater uses the personal information it collects to process your orders, to notify you of play changes and updates, and to notify you of upcoming productions and special events. Please be assured that your personal information will not be shared with any other organization.

Become a Volunteer
One of the best ways to support Main Street Theater is to become a volunteer. There are many ways to help out at MST. During the week volunteers can help with mailings, answering phones and folding programs.
The most popular way to volunteer is to usher for one of our productions. Ushers help take tickets, seat patrons, stuff and hand out programs. And the best part is, ushers can see the show for free! If you would like to volunteer to usher, please contact Andrew Ruthven at email@example.com.
