Donate to Summer Place Theatre in Naperville

Support Your Local Community Theatre

After bringing you 53 years of big theatre productions at little theatre prices produced by your friends and neighbors, a virus put a halt on season 54. 2020 was the season that wasn't.

Ticket sales pay for our production and what's left pays for storage, insurance and all those year-round costs. But this year, no ticket sales. 

Some folks turned their season ticket into a donation, and still others sent additional donations through this page of our website. Just recently, we started a Patreon channel, where we post private content like singing and acting lessons and performances just for Patreon subscribers. If you liked the group performance of We'll Meet Again, you can see all the individual performances that made up the group number. All those videos will be added during this week. 

So you have 2 ways to suport the Summer Place: 


Subscribe at Patreon

Patreon is a safe, secure and convenient way to support our theatre.  Sign up and establish a monthly credit card payment with patreon, and your gift keeps on giving, month after month. There's no minimum. A few dollars a month from a bunch of people will go along way to cover those monthly expenses.

BONUS: our patreon subscribers get access to specials that the general public do not. Right now, you can watch a series of singing and acting lessons held at our virtual training camp from summer 2020, plus our special virtual songs are there too. We just released our "We'll Meet Again" compilation, but it's fun to see each singer's full performance. Those are going up this week.

We Love Our Donors!

It takes a village to make a community theatre! We would not be where we are today without the contributions of wonderful people in the community.  And of course we can't get to where we want to be tomorrow without support from our new friends and existing sponsors. Thank you for your continued support.
