2018-2019 Season


At Northern Light Theatre we feel that we fill a unique role as an outspoken, purposefully-controversial and boundary-pushing company.  The content of our productions are brave and emotionally-driven.  It is our desire not only to entertain, but to spark meaningful discourse on the themes raised in our productions, and to engage our audience to take part in that discussion.    To that purpose, we are pleased to bring back our Salon-Styled events for a fourth season, facilitating productive and intelligent conversation and debate.
