​As a patron, you’ve seen some thrilling shows this past year: the world premiere of the enchanting holiday musical Krampus: A Yuletide Tale; the hilarious Die, Mommie, Die; The Full Monty; The Fantasticks, and the spellbinding Kiss of the Spider Woman. 


We also won the prestigious Artistic Excellence Award from the Greater Columbus Arts Council for coordinating the August Wilson Festival, presenting exciting productions or readings of Fences, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Gem of the Ocean and King Hedley II. Coming up is another original musical Christmas in Columbus: A Holiday Adventure. Please join us for this delightful and festive crowd pleaser.


Short North Stage once again has found a Secret Santa, who pledges to match all gifts before December 31 up to a total of $5,000. The quality of our programming is costly and ticket prices cover only a fraction of our costs. Maintaining the Garden Theater also requires substantial resources. The Garden has grown into an important community resource, providing a venue for a wide range of artistic performances beyond Short North Stage’s offerings.  The world-class Johnstone Fund for New Music Concerts and dance performances by our resident dance company, the Columbus Moving Company and the New Vision Dance Company are examples.

With so much to celebrate in 2016, we hope you will consider contributing to our Annual Holiday Fund. To DONATE, click HERE.
