Donate to Le Chat Noir:

Thank you for all your support while our theatre has been closed.  We are a small, family run theatre that operates on our love of performance and a profusion of creativity, but also our ticket sales. In an effort to do our part to slow down the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we suspended all of our performances starting in April 2020. We reopened in July 2020 with extremely limited programming and capacity to allow us to continue safe practices during this unpredictable time. Please keep an eye on this events page and sign up for our newsletter to hear about all of our upcoming events! As we work towards regaining our programming, please be patient with us; and any support is immensely appreciated. We miss you all terribly and can’t wait to entertain you again!
