PRODUCTION FEES


Production Fees are one of the five sources of income that support each production. The others are ticket sales, concessions, special activities and advertisements. Production Fees are the seed money to get the production rolling. Production fees are paid online at LifeLight Youth Theatre’s secure online payment system
Families can also participate in TJs Fundraiser to pay their production fee and have no out of pocket expenses at all. 
Special Arrangements
While we think the Production Fee is a great value, we understand that it can be a daunting amount, especially for families that have multiple children in the production. We do not want to prohibit anyone from being part of a LifeLight Youth Theatre production. If you would like to discuss special arrangements/payment plan options, please contact LifeLight Youth Theatre at lifelighttheatre@gmail.com
