For 26 seasons, Swine Palace, Louisiana’s premiere professional theatre, has consistently created productions that are artistically excellent, thought-provoking, relevant, and illuminate the human condition. But our accomplishments extend well beyond the stage and into the nine-parish Capital Region through our educational and community outreach programs, such as Project Lagniappe, Pay-What-You-Can previews, and the Student Matinee Series. Swine Palace’s achievements would not be possible without the generous support of our donors.
Revenue from ticket sales alone accounts for only a fraction of our operating costs. Like all nonprofit professional theatres, Swine Palace depends on the generosity of individuals like you to help bridge this crucial gap. By supporting Swine Palace, you place yourself in the company of those committed to providing outstanding artistic performances for the Baton Rouge community. We invite you to get involved as an individual donor or a corporate sponsor.
Gifts at any level are tremendously appreciated. Please join us in celebrating and supporting Swine Palace and make your gift today!
