About the Lantern
The mission of Lantern Theater Company is to produce theater that explores the human spirit through our choice of classic, modern, and original works. We seek to be a vibrant, contributing member of our community, to invite participation in dialogue and discussion, to educate audience members about artistic and social issues, and to employ theatrical language and techniques to enrich learning in the classroom. Founded in 1994 by Charles McMahon and Michael Brophy, the Lantern has produced over 80 plays by a wide range of contemporary and celebrated classic playwrights. We reach a growing audience of over 20,000 each season through three core programs: our mainstage productions, our audience enrichment series, and our education program, Illumination.
