Announcing the $75,000 Spring Challenge in honor of our 25th Anniversary Season! Please help us meet this challenge with your tax-deductible contribution by June 30.

What an exciting 25th anniversary season! We hope you are enjoying it as much as we are.

Our 2018/19 mainstage plays have been challenging and rewarding for our theater artists and for YOU, our audiences: the complexity of Tom Stoppard's Hapgood, the physicality and poetry of David Ives' The Heir Apparent, the bittersweet drama of Betrayal by Harold Pinter, the audacious modernity of Shakespeare's Measure for Measure. And still to come: the world premiere of Minors, a compelling new work of musical theater created by local artists Kittson O'Neill and Robert Kaplowitz and commissioned by the Lantern.
"The Lantern's production of Hapgood, directed by Peter DeLaurier, rises to the challenge of this enormously and gleefully complicated spy story... it's an enormously entertaining evening and launches what promises to be a brave season of five heady shows at the Lantern." –Phindie

"Measure for Measure is one of Shakespeare's 'problem plays,' troubling directors and scholars for four centuries, and each production, each reader, each audience arrives at its own interpretation. Director Charles McMahon has found one solution, and it's brilliant. Problem solved." –The Philadelphia Inquirer
Our bold and ambitious artistic risks have inspired an important gift in honor of our 25th anniversary: a $75,000 Spring Challenge from our Board of Directors and leadership donors. Your donation matched with this gift will provide vital support for core Lantern activities, on stage and in local classrooms.

Your contributions are essential, and we are extremely grateful for your support. Any amount is highly appreciated and very welcome. But our goal is $75,000, so donít be afraid to add an extra zero at the end. You are giving to a great cause, and all donations are 100% tax-deductible.

With appreciation,
Charles McMahon
