The 5 & Dime’s commitment to our community is reflected in our mission: The 5 & Dime tells stories that engage, inspire, entertain, and challenge audiences, nurturing a rich artistic culture in Jacksonville’s Urban Core. We’re dedicated to fulfilling that mission but, as you know, we can’t do it alone. The pursuit of excellence and the ability to introduce new audiences to the power of live theatre takes the support of members from the community like you, whose very lives we seek to enrich.
The 5 & Dime is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, and ticket revenue covers only a small portion of our operating costs. In an effort to make The 5 & Dime as accessible as possible to everyone by keeping ticket prices affordable, we rely on charitable contributions for a major part of our operating income. Without it, we simply wouldn’t be here and we wouldn’t be able to bring you the kind of high-quality productions our community has come to enjoy.
