We Can’t Do This Without You!

Part of the community, because of the community.

This theater company is fantastic. For three years now, 5-7 times a year, we travel 200 miles round trip so as not to miss a show. This intimate venue in scenic rural Minnesota is home to an absolutely top notch theater company. Truly a jewel. If you have a chance to stop here on your travels, it is well worth the detour off the beaten trail.”  — Jo Marie

One of our primary goals is to make theatre financially accessible to everyone. You can help us achieve that goal with an individual donation or a long-term pledge to the MDC—the heart of our donor program. Your generous contributions help us to keep ticket costs low. You can also make in-kind donations or help us find businesses interested in underwriting one of our productions. And of course, we would always love to see you in person—your donation of time and skills as a volunteer is invaluable. With your help, we can continue to bring great stories to life.

The Commonweal is thriving because of the people. When we picked up our tickets, I gave my name and the reply was, ‘Yes, I have your tickets right here.’ It was like this man knew me all his life. You all make us feel like family.”—Bill

As we say after every show, it is only through individual donations that we have been able to create professional live theatre in Lanesboro for the past thirty plus years. Your contribution today will allow us to keep true to our mission of enriching the common good through actor based storytelling which is both transcendent and relevant.
