Can you spare some change to help us MAKE change?

We're humbly asking you to consider making a contribution to The 5 & Dime that is meaningful to you. 100% of your contribution goes directly to helping us meet our mission of telling stories that engage, inspire, entertain, and challenge audiences, nurturing a rich artistic culture in Jacksonville.


We're dedicated to telling stories that engage, inspire, entertain, and challenge audiences. We've returned to our nomadic roots: an opportunity to challenge what theatre is and what theatre can be in this town. Join us for a theatrical experience you won't forget.


As a non-profit organization, we are committed to creating theatre experiences that are accessible to all people in the community by keeping ticket prices affordable. Your support allows us to bring exceptional storytelling and high-quality productions to this community.


We're passionate about our community of people who contribute in all kinds of ways to make The 5 & Dime a special place. We have opportunities to get involved on and off the stage, and our doors (wherever they may be) are always open for everyone.



We're pleased to welcome you to our 2022 Season! This is the first full season announcement since 2019 and our first full season since returning to our nomadic roots.

We had an ‘aha’ moment when we discovered the common theme between our lineup and every single person on this planet: the power of resilience. The characters in these plays are ordinary people experiencing extraordinary situations. They must overcome adversity and challenges, and they’ll do so through the power of resilience. Isn’t that something we’ve all experienced for the past 2 years?
