Spring Fundraising Drive: 100 For 100

Be a part of our “100 For 100” campaign to grow live local theater in Glenview!

Throughout the run of Never the Bridesmaid (May 17-July 3), Oil Lamp Theater is excited to announce our spring fundraising drive: 100 For 100. Our goal for this campaign is to welcome 100 new members to the Oil Lamp family with a mere $100 donation. If you’ve never made a donation to Oil Lamp, now’s your chance! The generosity of our patrons is the lifeblood of our theater. Your contribution isn’t just a reflection of the productions we’ve already delivered, or the main stage productions we’ve already announced, but the exciting new programming we plan on bringing to our patrons 2022 and beyond! We’re expanding our existing lineup to include live music, spoken word, staged readings, comedy and storytelling. Local artists’ work adorns our lobby walls! Did we mention we now have an expert mixologist whipping up craft cocktails for special events


Included in your donation:
Automatic cast member status, which entitles donors to an individual newsletter and advanced opportunity to purchase tickets before they’re announced to the general public. For this drive, any donors making a contribution will receive a special acknowledgement in our playbill for our July/August production, Failure: A Love Story. But that’s not all!


SAVE THE DATE: If you donate early, your donation includes an invitation to an exclusive members-only spring meet-and-greet at the theater on Sunday, June 5. Meet the staff, board, actors and artists who bring the theater to life! Lucky guests have a chance to win fantastic door prizes! Complimentary food will be provided! Drinks will be available for purchase from our bar, and live music will be performed on our lobby stage — the first lobby performance of 2022! — by the musical duo Crawford’s Daughter! If you miss our meet-and-greet, do not worry! More special events will be announced throughout the year!
