Support Interplayers Theater

Wake up, Spokane, and save Interplayers Theater. With its energy and vision, Interplayers plows $300,000 annually back into our local economy through wages, service and material purchases, plus taxes. Only the ushers, set and costume personnel are volunteers.

Interplayers community outreach includes year-round education for youth, plus interns from Gonzaga and Whitworth universities and Union Gospel Mission. The theater has a one-, five- and 10-year business plan, and just received a new grant for sound. In the last 10 years, new sprinklers, roof, elevator, lighting system and box office have been paid for.

Interplayers highlights a local nonprofit for each show, including Honor Flight, SCRAPS, Second Harvest, Cancer Patient Care and INBA. For local business and downtown vitality, we need Interplayers.

Please support Interplayers pronto and see the 32nd season.
