Choose your favorite way to donate
There are many ways to donate! Donate props, set pieces and costumes. Oak Park Festival Theatre does not have much storage space, and we can not accept most donations unless they are needed for current productions. We will, however, sometimes ask for the loan of furniture and props. Elizabethan costumes are always welcome, as are boots and swords. Call the office at 708-445-4440 if you have items that you think might be of use to the theatre; or email our Managing Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
