Support YOUR Northlight Theatre!

Your investment in Northlight Theatre helps ensure the artistic excellence you’ve come to expect and enjoy. It also helps grow our arts education outreach programs, which served over 3400 students in the 2015-16 school year.

We count on your donations to meet our budgetary needs, as ticket sales only cover approximately 50% of our costs. Thank you for helping to ensure Northlight’s ability to provide intensely entertaining theatre for current and future generations of theatre-goers!
