Cockpit in Court Summer Theatre is celebrating our 50th Anniversary this year!

Fifty years of Cockpit adds up to more than 120 musicals produced, more than 100 plays, over 35 Court Jesters productions, and 25 classics in the courtyard! (Remember those?) Over fifty years of Cockpit, more than 5,000 of our friends have played roles on these stages, designed sets and lights and costumes, directed and choreographed and played in the orchestra pit. We’ve seen literally a thousand young people find their footing with the Court Jesters, and dozens of them have made their way to the Cabaret or the Mainstage. Cockpit has performed in at least six different venues on campus, and also taken the gift of theatre to Russia and Japan.

In recognition of these phenomenal numbers and the impact Cockpit has had on so many lives, we are asking you, our faithful Cockpit supporters, to make a gift of $50 in honor of our 50th anniversary! It is our mission to present a diverse, well-balanced, quality theatrical season that promotes inclusion, embraces all cultures, experiences, and backgrounds, and fosters creativity among actors, artistic and production staff, the Board of Directors, and the community. Your support helps us keep this mission alive for years to come!

Can we count on your gift?

Whether you were in one of those first audiences for Celebration! or The Importance of Being Earnest, or if you just discovered Cockpit in the twenty-first century, we are thrilled that you are part of our family.
