As a Friend of the Orpheum, your tax-deductible gifts enable the Orpheum Theatre to fulfill its mission in four areas:

  • By helping bring a variety of local and legendary performances to the Orpheum state that ticket prices alone cannot support
  • By providing the financial infrastructure to offer educational programming that inspires learning through the performing arts
  • By creating a greater vision for the future of Wichita and the midwest
  • And by preserving and protecting the majestic Orpheum Theatre for generations to come

Your donation will invigorate our capacity! Becoming a Friend of the Orpheum is an easy and satisfying way to support our work. The range of donor levels enables you to provide support at an amount that is meaningful and affordable for you. All levels make an impact on our programming, our magnificent theatre and our community.

The Orpheum Performing Arts Centre, Ltd. is a  501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Ticket sales alone do not allow us to fully realize our multi-faceted mission and continue operating and programming our historic theatre. We rely on your support not only to assist us in paying for labor, artists fees, maintenance and operating costs, but to engage the community with programs that educate and challenge, as well as to entertain the public with a broad array of performing arts events.
