The Robert Natti Fund


Catalyst for Strategic Growth
at Gloucester Stage

In his many roles as teacher, guidance counselor, and principal in the Gloucester school system, Robert was a man with warm wisdom that provided a positive influence on many in the Cape Ann community.

The Robert Natti Fund is intended to be a continuing resource to invest in the strategic future of Gloucester Stage and unlock the full potential of the Company’s mission across Cape Ann and the broader performing arts community.​

Producer Level Donors

Champions of our Work Onstage

Patrons who are passionate about theatrical arts are needed to underwrite the costs of producing the high caliber, socially relevant, and intellectually stimulating plays at Gloucester Stage each Season. The cost of each production is over $100,000, but individual donors of $10,000 and above provide the capital necessary for presenting these powerful live stories onstage – and are included in special recognition.
