YOU are our Sunbeam! Look at all you’re making possible…
How many things are you helping us juggle at once?
Well, thanks to your support, this year we had two world premieres, held readings or workshops of seven new musicals, and launched the public phase of our Constellation Campaign. It truly is an exciting time to be part of Northern Sky. As always, we can’t thank you enough for your support.
Our annual appeal is more important than ever this year. For starters, we need to be sure that this annual fundraiser is working in sync with our special appeal for the new creative campus. That means we’d love for you to make your annual gift and then consider what you can give additionally to build us a badly needed home. We’re already at 80% of our goal, but need to get to 90% in order to break ground this coming spring. Yes, we’re that close! Please look for exciting opportunities coming your way to meet the challenge of ongoing Constellation Campaign matching gifts.
The other reason our annual campaign is critically important this year can be summed up in five unforgiving, unrelenting words: rain, rain, and more rain. This was our soggiest summer season in 30 years in the park. We’ve never seen anything like it. Night after night, we’d just look at one another as our endlessly patient crew and committed volunteers prepared the stage and audience for another improbable show. We uttered our mantra as one, “Hope we can get the show in.” Too often, unfortunately, we didn’t. That, of course, meant a lot of lost revenue. We need your help to make that up this time around.
Northern Sky is truly at a pivotal moment in our history. As such, we’re asking you to make Northern Sky a special focus of your 2017 end-of-year giving. Think about the magic you’ve helped create at Northern Sky and consider what your contribution has made to the community, to our region, and to the art form of creating original musicals.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Northern Sky to keep the momentum going.
With your help, Northern Sky will be here for generations to come.
See you under the stars!

Fred Alley New Musical Fund
Northern Sky produces original musical works. A new show can take three years of writing and workshopping before it is ready for production. Northern Sky needs to provide for our authors and directors with financial resources and time to continue bringing you the excellent shows that have become a standard for Northern Sky. For more information please visit the Fred Alley New Musical Fund page.
