Donors may establish scholarships in their name or in honor or memory of someone special. Named scholarships at UAB are funded on an annual basis.

Support UAB Department of Theatre Touring Groups

The Department of Theatre provides four different tours that allow our students to perform before a diverse audience of K-12 students and senior citizens throughout Alabama. The Touring Groups offer exciting performances for an otherwise underserved segment of our state’s population and performance opportunities for our students. The Touring Groups have been well received and travel widely but require annual funding to ensure their continuation. Learn more about our tour groups.

UAB Touring Companies Support Gifts

Donations made to Theatre UAB tours make this program possible. Your donation will provide valuable assistance with travel expenses, costumes and scenery, special props, and -- most importantly -- the scholarship funding for each company member.
