Individual Support

Donate to Skylight & Support Local Theatre

Did you know that ticket sales cover less than half of Skylight’s annual expenses? We rely on the generosity of our donors to close this gap and achieve a balanced budget each year. A gift to our annual campaign today enables us to continue creating stunning shows at the Broadway Theatre Center where we bring the fresh, intimate perspective to opera and musical theatre like no other company does.

No amount is too small—give today!
