School of Film, Dance and Theatre

Invest in ASU

Shawn Richards
Director of Development


Students in the School of Film, Dance and Theatre learn and create new work across boundaries of media, disciplines, and stages and explore sophisticated content through the lens of ethics in entertainment.

Please consider a gift to support a scholarship for one of our more than 450 students, provide key funding to purchase the latest in film technology, or support the award-winning costume shop. Performance sponsorships are available for as little as $5,000 per production and provide key support to help award winning community engagement partnerships like Performance in the Borderlands or support the creation of of new works as part of the Herberger Institute MainStage series.

Our unique areas of expertise in theatre for youth, multi-media design for the stage, ethics in entertainment, playwriting, and theatre/performance of the Americas both support and are supported by our production programming.

Investment in the School of Film, Dance and Theatre means supporting the four “Cs”: creativity, community, collaboration and collegiality. Every dollar goes to support outstanding creative practice and research.
