Is my ticket tax deductible?
Your ticket is NOT tax deductible due to the fact that you are getting something in exchange for the price. However, if you donate anything on top of your ticket price (e.g make a $5 donation or click to join Donor Circle) that IS tax deductible.
So thank you!

If I buy something from the Silent Auction, is that tax deductible?
If you bid higher than the retail value of the item, and win, then the difference IS tax deductible. 
For example, if show tickets are listed at $100 retail value and you win with a bid of $150, then $50 can be written off on your taxes!

What's a Mystery Star?
You'll have to show up to find out! ;) Mystery Stars are available for $20, so bring your cash and be surprised. 

How can I pay for Silent Auction and Mystery Star items?
You can use cash, credit or check! We accept all major credit cards.

Is the venue handicap accessible?
Absolutely. This venue is ground level with a handicap accessible bathroom as well.

I have allergy/dietary concerns, can I have specially made appetizers?
Although we cannot create an entire separate menu of hand-passed appetizers, we are willing to have our caterer make something that fits your needs. Please contact Jamie directly: jamie@newyorkdeaftheatre.org

Are you in need of volunteers?
NYDT is ever grateful for ALL of our committed volunteers! At the moment, we are not looking for volunteers for the fundraiser, but you are welcome to join our volunteer list on our website.

Will there be an after party?
