Last year, we celebrated our fifth anniversary as a company—and what started as five friends in a basement has become a five-year theatrical movement.

Five years cultivating and connecting artists through our Shelter Sunday workshop. Five years developing fresh and original theatre for the New York stage. Five years of affordable tickets for audiences. Five years of The Shelter—packed full of compelling and artistically engaging work that gives both artists and audiences a home. We have a vision the next five years, but we need your support. Read our plan to learn more.
