Support the Lantern
We invite you to play a crucial role in the Lantern's success by making a tax-deductible gift today.
With your support, the 2016/17 season has been a transformative one for your theater company. From our once-in-a-generation production of Mrs. Warren's Profession by G.B. Shaw to this spring's Coriolanus by William Shakespeare, the Lantern has grown from an up-and-coming regional theater to one drawing national attention.
This season, you witnessed the Philadelphia debut of celebrated Shakespearean director, actress, and scholar Tina Packer as Volumnia in Coriolanus.
"Packer's presence is a lovely confirmation of something local audiences can feel proud of – the best of Lantern's Shakespeare is very fine indeed, and the company has helped bring the Philadelphia theater scene to national prominence." –Philadelphia Magazine, March 2017This season has also seen the blossoming of our Theater Artist Fair Pay Initiative, which was recently highlighted in American Theatre magazine as a leading national success story for increasing artist compensation through a combination of fundraising and higher ticket sales.
"Increasing artist pay has allowed Lantern Theater Company to ask for additional rehearsal and performance time, which [artistic director Charles] McMahon says has only deepened its relationship with artists, as well as leading to better productions, stronger critical reception, and a seven-percent increase in subscriptions. 'If we value something, then we should be willing to pay for it,' McMahon said. 'We want to keep the artistic life of Philadelphia growing and evolving, and too many people leave the field at the peak of their careers because of money.'" –American Theatre, February 2017Your support is essential. Your attendance at our plays and your contributions year-round are moving the Lantern forward in meaningful and exciting ways. Please consider making a tax-deductible gift today!
