General donation

It is a pleasure to bring community based theatre to our area. We proudly present a wide range of performing arts for all ages and walks of life. Scholarships have been given to multi-generational students for both degree and continuing education in the performing arts, and to our own youth camp. 

The impact of individual donors cannot be emphasized enough.  You are the lifeblood of our organization, and the key to our growth and success. For example, $13 could be used to buy makeup sponges $25 a libretto, or $125 a scholarship to our one week Summer Theatre Institute.

Every gift matters. Your donation of any size will play a significant role in ensuring Highlands Lakeside Theatre will create memories for you and your loved ones for many generations – right here in our community.  Contributions of $250 have the option of being recognized with a chair plaque. Gifts of $1000 may choose to be recognized with a Cabaret Table plaque. These options are available while supplies last and are subject to change without notice.
