The Founder Circle

Dear Friends,

I am delighted to invite you to join Rogue Machine Theatre through our Founder Circle, our closest group of friends and supporters.

We are establishing the group to advance our vision to create and produce the most relevant, engaging, and exceptional regional theatre today.

You can join a growing community of theatergoers in Southern California who are looking for new work – the stories of today from the voices of contemporary writers – London, Dublin, New York, Chicago, and especially, Los Angeles. By joining with us in our Founder Circle and committing to five years of support, you recognize that Los Angeles needs a theatre that can invigorate the larger community and the artistic community to which we contribute.

As a Founder, you will support the most remarkable theatre being produced today, including playwrights' workshops that refine brilliant new voices in the medium. With a range of exclusive benefits (see more below) at various giving levels, we invite you to participate, bringing enhanced stability to Rogue Machine, and unparalleled access to you.

By joining the Founder Circle, you have access to intimate and exclusive events year-round, as well as other special benefits for a commitment over five years. We enthusiastically look forward to your participation, and to welcoming you as a member of our Founder Circle.

Warm Regards,

​Lewin Wertheimer
Chair, Board of Directors
