Support Friends of Signature Today!

Our Friends of Signature help make our programming possible, and we hope that you will become a member today! Please join us in celebrating Signature’s mission of reinventing classic musicals and producing contemporary works—in addition to commissioning musicals and reaching our community through engaging educational and outreach programs.

Signature couldn’t bring you a season full of reinvented and newly discovered plays and musicals—in our famous intimate settings—without your help. Each season, our goal is to showcase Signature favorites and introduce new faces and for each production to bring something unexpected and innovative to the stage—as only Signature can do!
