Annual Fund

As a not-for-profit theatre, ticket sales cover only a portion of Starlight’s expenses to produce and present the shows and concerts you enjoy all summer long. Starlight Theatre’s Annual Fund is essential in ensuring that Starlight continues to be a cherished Kansas City tradition. Your gift to the Annual Fund helps us to keep ticket prices affordable, provide educational programming to students in the metropolitan area, assist with the maintenance and preservation of this beautiful, historic venue and continue to expand Starlight’s community outreach efforts.

This list reflects donations to Starlight Theatre’s Annual Fund between October 1, 2017 and August 21, 2018.
