While the stage is dark, the Scene Shop has been exploring our passion for sustainable theatre practices and support for our natural environment.

These items, made from recycled materials from past Northlight shows, are available for purchase.

Proceeds benefit Northlight Theatre, helping ensure the future of our stage.


HOLIDAY AVAILABILITY: Due to the individually handcrafted nature of our bee and bat houses, we can no longer guarantee product delivery by December 25. However, for orders intended as holiday gifts, we are happy to provide a certificate to give to your recipient while they wait for their item to arrive. (Fun fact: Bee houses are best hung in the spring, so your friendly neighborhood bees aren’t missing out with post-holiday deliveries!)
Orders for pick-up rather than delivery may be ready sooner. Please complete the form below with your desired items and any questions about timing indicated in the Notes, and a Northlight representative will contact you to discuss the options.

Bee House

Bee houses offer safe hibernation for pollinating insects through the winter. They are a way for our scene shop to give back to the environment by housing native insects and providing pollination services to the next generation of plants.

Bat House

Bats are an important part of a functioning ecosystem. Making a bat-friendly place in your backyard supports the ecologically essential role bats have in the environment, including pest-control, pollination, and seed dispersal. Using recycled materials to build these bat houses reduces our environmental impact while giving back to nature.
