Donor Tech

Tuesday evenings at Hartford Stage. October 11, November 22, January 10, February 28, April 11 and May 23.

Join Artistic Director Melia Bensussen and special artistic guests for a sneak-peek of the shows on stage this season. Learn about the play and its design, and then observe rehearsal – “Tech” as we call it! – inside the theatre while the actors and designers work to create the finished product.

Opening Nights

Locations TBD. October 21, December 2, January 20, March 10, April 21 and June 2.

These celebratory events on each Opening Night performance are for our generous community of supporters! Join Harford Stage leadership for a pre-show social event and hear remarks before seeing the show on stage. Hassle free ticket exchange into the opening night performance is complimentary, if you have seats for a different performance. Costs for opening night festivities vary based on the event.

Ovation Society Appreciation

Date/Time TBD.

At the end of the season we celebrate you! As one of our top-tier donors, we invite you to attend a specially curated event with Hartford Stage leaders, board and guest artists. Always a surprise by invitation, you can look forward to events like private movie screenings with film stars, museum tours, book signings and other exclusive experiences.

The Garmany Room Loyalty Lounge

Hartford Stage’s private event space is a great venue for a pre-show dinner or reception. From client entertainment to kid’s birthday parties, we can accommodate your needs. This enclosed space has its own bar and a rotating display of production artwork and photography. Work with the Hartford Stage staff and preferred caterers to create an experience that is unique and convenient in the lower lobby at the theatre.
