We Need Your Support

Sowelu could not provide artists the opportunity to bring impactful works to the community without your generosity and good will. 

Sowelu is a volunteer-driven, 501-c3 non-profit organization. Since our inception, support from the community has enabled us to create affordable, viscerally engaging performances and to bring educational theater and outreach programs to diverse parts of our region. 

Please consider supporting Sowelu with a tax- deductible, year-end contribution. You will receive our thanks and tax ID in a letter for your tax deduction.

I support Sowelu because of the rich, intimate performances they bring to the stage. The actors and artistic leadership of Sowelu are truly devoted and passionate about their craft. I’ve personally experienced performances that have pushed me out of my comfort zone, challenged my assumptions, and have made me feel alive!

We are long time supporters of Sowelu Theater. Sowelu pulls us out of our Shakespeare, August Wilson, Sam Shepard comfort zone and shakes us up. Whatever the play, we know that the cast and crew will put together a professional and entertaining performance.
