We Also Ask for your Time and Talents on this #GivingTuesday
Since 1966, The Summer Place has been delivering Big Theatre Quality at Little Theatre Prices performed by your friends and neighbors. Covid has made our efforts difficult but not impossible, and as you know, the show must go on!
We rely on the generosity of folks like you to offset the very heavy costs of bringing Broadway shows to everyone in our community. On this #GivingTuesday, as you help others, please consider a donation to keep live theatre alive and well in Naperville!
Donate by Credit Card at PayPal
Donate the safe, secure way. You don't have to have a PayPal account. By clicking the button above, you have the opportunity to give once or establish a monthly amount. It's fast and convenient.
Join our Patreon Group
Here's another way to give. By opening a Patreon account, you can set a monthly donation, and as an added benefit, be privy to the latest news and special content from Summer Place only available to the group.
Buy Early Bird Tickets
Early Bird ticket purchasers help us fund the early expenses of the show, so it's a big help. And of course, there's something in it for you too! You get to see The Sound of Music next July, AND as an early bird purchaser, you'll get free or discount passes to events leading up to the show.

Other Ways to Give
There's a wise old saying: Money isn't Everything! If you love theatre and always wanted to be a part, Giving Tuesday is a great day to take the first step!
Join our Board of Directors
If you have a business background and strong leadership skills, you can help take our theatre into the future. Just email and we'll get in touch to talk further.
Join a Committee
Do you have a knack for digital publishing, social media, audio/video technical skills, carpentry, and/or finance? You guessed it: we need ALL those talents. Help with publicity, fiduciary, or tech committees. Just email and tell us your interest.
Direct a show
We are now looking for a production team for our next show: The Sound of Music. We need a director, set, sound, and lighting designers, and a stage manager. Simply email and we'll start talking.
Audition for a show
Is your singing limited to the shower? C'mon! Show off on stage! You don't have to be the star of the show to be on stage. There are lots of chorus parts. And who knows; maybe you're more talented than you give yourself credit for, and maybe you'll be the next Julie Andrews or Christopher Plummer!
Talk us up!
Here's a really easy way to help us. Jump on your favorite social media platform and start writing. Copy the link to PayPal from above and drop it into your post, and ask your friends to donate. Or simply send them to our website, SummerPlaceTheatre.org, and let them discover us for themselves.
As George M. Cohan used to say:
My Mother Thanks You
My Father Thanks You
My Sister Thanks You
And I Thank You!
