Lantern Theater Company is committed to an authentic and intimate exploration of the human spirit in our choice of classics, modern, and original works for the stage. Founded in 1994, the Lantern has produced over 100 plays by a wide range of contemporary and classic playwrights. We reach a growing annual audience of over 35,000 through three core programs: mainstage productions, community and audience enrichment, and our Illumination education program and the Lantern Theater School.
We produce five plays each year as part of our mainstage season. We also curate and present conversations with theater artists and special guests on timely topics related to our plays.
Our innovative education programs engage local schoolchildren and adults in the world of theater, nurturing their artistic expression through in-school residencies, discount student matinee performances, teaching artist training, empathy training for medical students, and theater classes for all skill levels.
