Support AIRE

As “Maine’s Irish Theater Company,” AIRE presents classic and contemporary Irish and Irish American productions that share the power and beauty of Irish theater and increase understanding of Irish culture.

Almost all of our funds go directly to producing shows, which entails everything from paying for the performance space to building sets to creating costumes. But the cost of production is steadily rising, and our ticket sales can’t cover the increase. We’re determined to keep our prices low so more people can enjoy the unique theatrical experience we provide.

We need your help to continue to mount high-quality productions. We greatly appreciate tax-deductible contributions of any size.

Please help if you can.
We can’t do it without you!
