Providing Arts & Cultural Experiences to Our Community

Donate Now

Give the Gift of Magic is an annual initiative inspired by Morgan and Tara Rutman to provide complimentary tickets to our Seacoast neighbors in need. We’re growing the program; in 2019 we gave 349 tickets to local families, and we hope to reach even greater numbers this year.

How it works:

Every time you purchase a ticket to any show at The Music Hall, you can give an additional, tax-deductible donation that will help us provide tickets through our community partners.

We’ve partnered with: Big Brothers Big Sisters of New Hampshire, Arts in Reach, Greater Seacoast Community Health,  Cross Roads House, Easter Seals NH, One Sky Community Services and many others to distribute tickets.  

Donations are accepted online, in person, or over the phone by calling 603.436.2400.

“At David Krempels Brain Injury Center, we serve brain injury survivors in the Seacoast area, some of whom have significant financial needs and limited access to the arts. Give The Gift has given our members an incredible opportunity to engage in their community and take a breather from the challenges of life after brain injury. We are incredibly grateful for The Music Hall’s generosity!” —Jay Lancaster, MS CCC-SLP, Program Director
