LTO depends on your membership, annual support and funding to maintain the productions we now have. While these funds are crucial for today, we know that our long-term success depends on the consistent income that would be provided by an endowment like the Sharon Stark Forever Fund.

This fund is named after Sharon Stark, a founding member of LTO who attended or participated in every production for 52 years. Sharon provided a generous donation to the theatre which established the Forever Fund.

Sharon will be a part of LTO’s work forever!
