“It’s hard to believe that almost 50 years have since passed and East West Players is embarking on the largest and most ambitious season ever. More importantly, the 2017-18 season The Company We Keep is all about community and relationships. Over the past 52 years, East West Players has built a space where we can gather to respond to our nation and the world. Where we can strengthen existing relationships and a place where Asian American stories and voices have space to be whole human beings, to be safe, to be…

Once again this year our Board of Directors has generously issued a challenge match of $20,000—so when you make your donation by December 31, it will be matched dollar-for-dollar, doubling the impact of your gift! EWP is at its strongest when we are providing a stage for those whose stories have not been told and we cannot do it without your support.”



East West Players celebrates its 52nd Anniversary – a milestone achievement – as the nation’s premier Asian American theater, and we are asking you to help ensure a bright future for East West Players by supporting us with a year-end gift!

We can’t do any of this without you.

Your gift will support:

  • Our mainstage productions in which we are the largest theater employer of Asian artists in the country

  • Our educational programs that reach thousands of students each year in the theatre and in the classroom

  • Our professional development programs and conservatory that train the next leaders in the Asian American artistic community

  • Our artistic development programs that fosters new voices and perspectives.

Last year, EWP brought world-class theatre and arts education programs to over 30,000 people, and provided opportunities to over 300 performers, directors, designers, writers and crew, and this is only the beginning.

We are counting on you to ensure that the impact of our work continues to be felt for decades to come!

Make an online gift donation to East West Players and help us reach our goal by January 1, 2018!
