The Highlander Theatre Company is committed to providing every Somerville High School student the opportunity to participate in a live theatre experience, whether onstage, backstage, or in the audience. Ticket revenue and individual contributions represent up to 90% of the HTC operating budget each year.

In March of 2019, when schools and theatres were closed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we were less than a week away from the opening of one of our productions. This meant that students were unable to put that show in front of an audience, and HTC lost a number of important revenue opportunities. 

During the 2020/2021 School Year, The Highlander Theatre company successfully presented a fully virtual season that included live streamed productions of a full-length play, a musical, and world premiers by student playwrights.

This year, we are so thrilled to return to in-person performances with an entirely outdoor Fall season and the grand opening of the new Centennial Auditorium in the Spring. We are grateful to our community partners, the Somerville Community Growing Center and Somerville Arts for Youth for helping us make it happen! 

We're utilizing every resource available to us to keep theatre thriving at SHS. All proceeds from this year's productions will go towards supporting this year's programming and building back a reserve for next year's season. 

Please consider purchasing a ticket and joining our community for a performance or two. Encourage friends and family to do the same! Direct donations are also appreciated and can be made below.

Thank you for your support!
