Lamp-Lite Theatre

About the Theatre Building

Lamp-Lite Theatre's intimate auditorium comfortably seats 216 and each row is elevated above the one in front so that there is truly no bad seat in the house. Area artists exhibit in the lobby for each show, while other scenic artists create an ever-changing panorama as settings for the plays.

Volunteers join the ever-broadening number of participants of our community theatre, acting on stage, running lights, building and painting sets, making music, dancing, working the box office, ushering, putting together publications, mail-outs, grant applications, benefits, etc.

“It’s all part of the show at Lamp-Lite,” says Lamp-Lite Founder & Director Sarah McMullan.


This past year, we painted the Theatre entrance, lobby and auditorium. We also upgraded our electrical system. In addition to all this, we installed an improved system for hanging our art exhibits.

Most recently, we installed new sound equipment that will enable us to offer more and better sound effects; added another layer of insulation under the floor to keep the Theatre more comfortable for audience and actors alike; and repaired the roof in the costume room to protect our valuable store of costumes.

These improvements to the Theatre building are made possible by the generosity of the late Jo Price, patron and supporter of the Lamp-Lite Theatre.

Building Fund

We welcome your contributions to our Building & Maintenance Fund for Lamp-Lite Theatre. Now in our 50th Season, we look with pride at our "vintage old building."

Originally built from hundred-year-old planks from the Phelan Warehouse, our building has been added to, and improved, many times over the years and is always in need of a "little face lift."
