50th Anniversary Events


Since 1969, through the magic that is the performing arts, The Candlelight Theatre has made us laugh and cry, enriched the community, and inspired generations by retelling the greatest stories of our time on stage…  in a barn that became an amazing theater.

So, this year, we celebrate the founders, our patrons, the many volunteers, and very talented actors and crew.

We dedicate our Anniversary year to preparing for the next 50 years by:

  • Preserving our amazing play house and the traditions of live theater
  • Presenting the classics shows and classics- in-the making for all generations to enjoy
  • Providing education opportunities for theater enthusiasts young and old.

There are so many opportunities to join us in the celebration!

More information on events and tickets will be available soon!
