"We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; for he to-day that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother"

Whether it's imaginative and gripping takes on Shakespeare, resurrecting Jane Austen's favorite play, an original literary adaptation, or rocking out at Hamlet project, you know that We Happy Few always strives to bring you original, lively, and unexpected performances. But we can't do this without some support from you, and while we aren't asking you to shed literal blood for us, a little bit of support goes a long way... 


Introducing The Band. We Happy Few's mission is to transform the experience of classic texts for artists and audiences and we want you to come along with us on the ride. Become a member of The Band, our base of support, by pledging a donation of $5 a month for the next year. For the cost of a latte a month you will provide us with vital resources that we need to continue to bring edge of your seat classic theatre to Washington DC and beyond. 


In turn, Band Members will get a shout out at all WHF performances, invites to exclusive Band only events, and $5 tickets to all WHF shows. 


Interested in joining? Simply go to our donation page, select a recurring monthly donation of $5 (or more!) and you're all set. You'll officially be with the Band! 


As an independent non-profit theatre company We Happy Few largely relies on the generosity of our audience members who enjoy, value, and support our work.


This season is one of our most ambitious yet. We will revive Jane Austen's favorite play in the charmingly romantic Lover's Vows, take you on a blood curdling tale of revenge in Count of Monte Cristo, and finish out with the poetically beautiful Cyrano De Bergerac. To match our ambitions on stage we need your help. 


This season we are looking to raise $21,500 from individual donors to make it happen! 


These funds will go towards our ongoing commitments of compensating artists fairly, hiring local, and bringing high quality and affordable theatre to Washington DC and Capitol Hill. 


There are many ways for you to give: 

  • Make a monthly recurring donation and become a member of the Band 

  • Make a fully tax deductible one-time donation through our website.  

  • Give in person after a WHF performance 


We are incredibly grateful for your support over the years and are looking forward to another incredible season!
