Candlelight’s Next Great Adventure!

For more than 50 years, The Candlelight Theatre has been welcoming and entertaining audiences in the quaint little barn in Ardentown, Delaware. In 2020, the world changed and like many businesses, Candlelight was forced to shut down. While the stage remained dark for much of 2020, the staff, board, and volunteers worked tirelessly to create a safe space to welcome back audiences once it is appropriate to do so. 
 
That time, we believe, is on the horizon and we cannot contain our excitement. As we approach this new chapter in our long history, we need your support to make sure we can open our doors to you with confidence and preparedness to face this new adventure.
 
Join us on March 4th and 5th and have your contribution go further than ever before. Along with the Do More 24 Delaware sponsors, such as United Way and Delaware Division of the Arts, Candlelight will be offering prizes and incentives. More details to come. 
 
Get reminded to donate that day by selecting the “Remind me to donate” button above.
