Support high quality, accessible Shakespeare

Midsommer Flight is committed to keeping all of our programming free and Pay-What-You-Can. Without reliable ticket revenue, we rely instead on support from generous donors like you. Donate today to help us continue to bring high quality, accessible productions to Chicago — and to become more connected to our company’s work and community.

Recurring Donations

Alternatively, we invite you to set up a monthly recurring donation, which will continue automatically for 12 months. As a small not-for-profit organization, being able to rely on these regular monthly donations helps to sustain our ongoing financial stability. (Of course, if a monthly recurring payment is not for you, you can always make a one-time donation anytime.)
