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 4000 students in the 2016-2017 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!
