Free Night of Theater

Free Night of Theater is a national program, originally created by Theater Communications Group (TCG), the national organization for the American Theatre.

Free Night of Theater is currently supported by the LA Stage Alliance, which has been empowering artists and engaging audiences since 1975.


Free Night of Theatre is a national program devised to help audience development and as a way for theatres to give back to their communities, showing what the arts are capable of.

Free Night of Theater started in 2005 with over 150 companies in Austin, Philadelphia, and San Francisco. That first year, almost 8,000 attendees participated around the country, viewing over 120 performances. Spotlighters has been participating since 2009 and is the only theatre in the state of Maryland currently participating in Free Night.
