2016 has been an exciting year for Starlight Theatre.
Indoor programming at Starlight is now a reality, as audiences enjoyed four Off-Broadway-style comedies in January and have returned this fall for more indoor shows in our heated Cohen Community Stage House. More than 280,000 Kansas City area residents and visitors attended a Broadway musical, concert or indoor show at Starlight this year – and we expect that number to climb as we continue to expand our annual entertainment calendar.
Our 11 performing arts education programs reached more than 6,000 youth from age 5 through college, and the opening of Starlight’s new Education Pavilion last spring gave these aspiring young artists the space they need to excel. The Starlight community ticket program gave 13,478 free tickets to local nonprofits so their clients could experience a Broadway musical under the stars. And, we better used the big LED screens alongside our stage to educate and entertain our guests.
We hope that 2016 has been just as rewarding for you and yours.
Now, as attention turns to the upcoming holidays, all of us at Starlight hope you will include our landmark theatre and important community resource on your “gift-giving” list. Your year-end charitable donation to the Starlight Theatre Annual Fund will help our 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization continue the good work it has done for the past 67 years – and prepare us to raise the bar ever higher for the future!
Please consider the Starlight memories you cherish as you make a year-end gift of any amount to Starlight’s Annual Fund. We greatly appreciate your generosity.

Thank you. And, best wishes for joyful holidays!
