Investing in The NOLA Project means investing in the health and future of New Orleans theatre

With your help, The NOLA Project has continued to successfully provide opportunities for actors, designers, playwrights and artists to flourish in our community. We are one of the largest employers of theatre artists in the state of Louisiana and regularly produce new work from both local and national writers in an effort to bring our New Orleans stories to the entire world. Help us continue to build our arts community and bring New Orleans theatre to a more prominent national level. By contributing to our organization, you will be playing an instrumental role in giving our artists the resources they need to create the best possible work with the highest standards of excellence.

We've got big goals! Help us continue our upward growth by making a tax-deductible contribution or attending our gala fundraiser.

The rest comes from individual supporters like yourself. You may donate online here or do so via check.

If you are interested in interning, please email us with a letter of intent and a resume.
