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. 


This year, we were determined to continue our mission and provide a space for students to create theatre together. We knew that participation in a theatre program would provide students and audiences with some of the most important elements to getting through a crisis:  connection to a community, dependability, and hope for a brighter future ahead.

In collaboration with our community partners, Somerville Arts for Youth, we've utilized every resource available to us to keep theatre alive 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, when we hope to return to in-person performances. 

This year, all of our productions will be "Pay-What-You-Can" pricing. Please consider purchasing a ticket and joining our community for a performance or two. Encourage friends and family (near and far) to do the same. Direct donations are also appreciated and can be made below.

Thank you for your support!
