If you cannot sign up right now, then here are some other ways you can help us keep The Understudy going.

  • Sign up for a class. [Available Classes]

  • Buy a shirt and wear it around town.

  • Put a car decal on your back window.

  • Volunteer to feed our performers grapes and nuts while fanning them with a large palm leaf.

Become a Patron

Our goal is to bring Tyler a great entertainment venue and help build a performance culture here in East Texas. We cannot succeed without the patronage of the people of our city. Please visit our Patreon to see how you can help support this local theater and gain benefits for yourself. Thank you so much for your consideration. We couldn't do this without all of you.
