Donations, Birthday Parties, & Rentals

Ticket Donations

Currently, we are not able to donate gift certificates for school auctions/fundraisers since we are still not offering a regular, full schedule of in-person performances. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Birthday Parties

Discovery Theater does not do birthday parties, nor can we provide a space to accommodate a birthday party before or after a performance. There are no exceptions.


Many of the Smithsonian museums and the National Zoo are available as unique settings for special events. Organizations and individuals can now rent Smithsonian spaces for their private event.  To learn more about the venues, spaces that are available for rent, capacities of spaces, and contact information, please visit: https://www.si.edu/SpecialEvents. Please do not contact Discovery Theater directly for Rental inquiries.
