Starlight Community Theater is a nonprofit, 501c3 community theatre that relies on donations and support from our community so that we may continue quality programs for actors of all ages. For the past 15 years, Starlight has created a space where actors, directors, and tech crew can learn, grow, and create live performing arts to not only entertain but enrich their community and themselves. Being a part of performing arts has been proven to increase mental and social impact, increase grades in school, and create a more balanced, accepting, and nurturing community of people.

Royalties, Music, Licensing & Scripts: $800 - $1,500
Stipends: $200 - $3,000
