Coming in 2012 Join the Capital Campaign to rebuild the Dreamland Theater.
We hope you will join the work of the non-profit Nantucket Dreamland Foundation to help rebuild The Dreamland Theater for the residents of Nantucket-- seasonal and year-round--and for visitors and guests to the island, in a beloved historic institution that will now enrich the island in so many new ways. Your tax-deductible contributions are needed to help us complete our $32M capital campaign. Since 2008, we have raised more than $24M, including $10M to purchase the site and the balance to design, permit, and build our state of the art, LEED certified center for the arts on Nantucket. We invite you to be a part of a project that will become one of the island’s iconic destinations.
