The Young Shakespeare Players is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization established to aid the work young people have been doing in Madison for 35 years. Your tax-deductible donation can be a vital help! Thousands of young people have experienced the challenge and joy of working with the world’s best literature and drama, and having fun growing with it. We believe it has made a permanent, positive change in them!

YSP operates very efficiently—using nearly no paid staff to produce a large amount of classical theater that reaches and involves many young actors each year. But actor’s tuition fees do not pay nearly all of the program’s costs. So, keeping the program going is a continual financial struggle.

Please consider making YSP a regular part of your charitable giving. A donation of any amount will help us achieve our mission.
