Bob Wetzel“I believe in the power of theater to provoke, to educate, to entertain, to stimulate, and to engage. I have been blessed with many opportunities to experience all of these in theaters around the world, bequeathed to me by others. A legacy gift to Northern Stage is the way I hope to ‘pay forward’ the great gifts of theater that have been given to me!”

Brooke and Jim Adler“We are grateful for the rich cultural life we enjoy in the Upper Valley, especially the world class live theater offered by Northern Stage. We marvel at the range and quality of their productions and at their strong sense of commitment to our community, led by superb education programs that bring a love of theater to hundreds of children. When the Legacy Society was created we jumped at the chance to help ensure Northern Stage will be strong for many years to come. How could we not do our part?”

Al and Karen Blum“We are ardent believers in the value of the performing arts and especially in the way storytelling that happens in theater can help inform one’s understanding of the world. Northern Stage has been a bright leader and important influence in the cultural life of the Upper Valley and beyond. We are proud to be among its supporters on an annual basis and through the Legacy Society to have made an estate commitment to enable future generations of theater goers to experience all that Northern Stage can offer.”

Heywood Alexander“Northern Stage – outstanding leadership in the arts – high professionalism – remarkable performances – outreach – a welcoming environment for performers and audiences – education - the impetus for our bequest of a scholarship fund in memory of former board member Beatrice (Bea) Alexander for the support of young actors learning their craft.”

A Conversation with Karen and John Sanders

We first began attending Northern Stage productions in the fall of 1996—one year after we moved to the Upper Valley from Chicago. We learned about Northern Stage from a friend, and found its work every bit as delightful as Chicago’s. We have been fans, subscribers, and donors ever since!
