The Prospero Society

The Prospero Society

“How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.”
— William Shakespeare

The Prospero Society is a community of CSC’s most devoted and enthusiastic supporters. Society members believe passionately in our mission to bring Shakespeare’s timeless works to the community, in productions that are of the highest artistic quality, innovatively presented, and accessible to all audiences. We train the next generations of theater professionals to explore these works and continue the tradition, while instilling a lifelong love of theater in artists and audiences.

As a Prospero Society member with your annual gift of $1,000 or more, you will enjoy opportunities to meet other members who share your commitment to CSC, gain access to our artists and glimpses behind the scenes, and — most of all — experience the joy that comes from knowing you are sharing in the future of the arts in our community.
