Your donations are tax-deductible since we are a 501-3(c) not-for-profit company, and your dollars will go a long way toward making our productions a reality.

Help support the Arts in Naperville. Here are some of the costs that we have to cover to bring our shows to life:

  • Scripts and Licensing
  • Painted Backdrops
  • Sound Equipment
  • Lumber, Paint, and other construction materials
  • Printing costs (tickets, programs, posters)



Donation Amount


Total: $0.00  


Put your business or organization or favorite cause in the Summer Place Spotlight with a program ad.

When you go to a theatre performance, what do you do? You sit and read the program until the show starts, just like everybody else. Now that's what we call a captive audience! Let them see your product or service.

Each production has a different demographic, but run from mid-teens to 80’s and average around 200 per perfomance. Choose the shows that match your audience and advertise in our full-color program. Choose the run of season and save!



Simply email with your artwork. Or we can make an ad for you for $200. We’ll reply with a link for payment.

  • Each order is for a single production.
  • Save 10% if you run your ad in 2 productions.
  • Save 20% if you run your ad in 3 productions.

Each half-page or larger order receives 2 complementary tickets to the production. A $40 value!




Happy Birthday, Illinois!

The 2018 Summer Place Season is recognized as an official Illinois state Bicentennial Commission Project.

Learn more about the commission at their website.



It takes a village to make a community theatre!
We would not be where we are today without the contributions of wonderful people and organizations in the community.

And of course we can't get to where we want to be tomorrow without support from our new friends and existing sponsors.
