Thank you to all Travel with Surflight Theatre guests for making our April Fundraising Trip to Amish Country a huge success.
It felt like we were old friends getting together for a reunion, not like new acquaintances meeting for the first time.
With good food, good weather, and good company, what more could you ask for? Enjoy these candid photos of our time in Lancaster.
We hope you will join us in the fall for the Renaissance Faire and Feast Weekend!


Surflight’s Sweet Soiree held on February 14th began our campaign to raise funds for Surflight’s Lobby Beautification Project. We would like to thank those patrons who attended this event, as well as the staff and committee members who helped prepare for the festivities. You will see your donations put to good use as the lobby undergoes some redecorating in the near future.


Thanks to Sweets ‘N Smiles of Barnegat, Philly Pretzel Factory of Manahawkin, Edible Arrangements of Manahawkin, and especially The Gables for their deliciously generous contributions!
