As a primarily self-funded organization, Hoof 'n' Horn relies greatly on the support of our sponsors each year to continue our 84-year legacy of sharing exceptional theatre with the Duke and Durham communities. Your contributions directly support each of our three mainstage shows, as well as larger projects, such as purchasing state-of-the-art equipment or expanding our community outreach initiatives. We greatly appreciate your support. Instructions on how to give can be found below.

Part of what makes Hoof 'n' Horn special is that we do it all ourselves: we choose our own seasons, direct and perform in shows and cabarets, and balance our budgets. But ticket sales alone cannot fund the high-quality performances we feel our audiences deserve. That's where you come in. Contributions help us out at every step of the process, including:


  • Show rights and materials

  • Set construction, theater and equipment rental, and technical expenses

  • Publicity and advertising costs

  • Audience and accessibility services, including audio description for audience members who are low vision

  • Community outreach initiatives to expand our audiences and fulfill our mission of bringing exceptional theatre to the Duke and Durham communities

  • Alumni outreach and events
