Your Pentacle Legacy

Become a member of the Bright Lights Society

Many Pentacle Theatre patrons have left a financial gift to the Pentacle in their estate planning. And you can too!

Benefits of membership

Being a member of the Bright Lights Society means that you will be:

  • Recognized in every Pentacle Theatre program
  • Invited to the appreciation party unveiling the upcoming season
  • Deeply appreciated by all of us

Include Pentacle Theatre in your estate plan

Your long-term gift through your will or bequest to Pentacle Theatre will make it possible to maintain the beautiful theater and grounds you have come to love. Or, it can produce a new play. Or, it can fund the production of a comedy, drama, or musical. You can tell us where you want your gift to go or you can let us decide where the need is greatest.

What we do know is that you can make a difference for decades to come by leaving the Pentacle in your will. Use this sample language:

“I give to the Pentacle Theatre, its successors and assigns, whose office is at 145 Liberty Street NE, Salem, OR 97301, ______________ (insert either a dollar amount or percentage), tax ID number 93-0513552.”

Please let us know if you have named the Pentacle Theatre in your will. We want to thank you and invite you to become a member of the Bright Lights Society. Call the office at (503) 485-4300 or email Steven Trahan at

Designate Pentacle Theatre as a life insurance or pension plan beneficiary

You can do this in one of two ways:

  1. Transfer an existing policy to Pentacle Theatre as owner/beneficiary (in whole or in part).
  2. Purchase a new policy with Pentacle Theatre as applicant, owner and irrevocable beneficiary.

Unless otherwise restricted, distribution from a life insurance policy will go into the theatre’s general operating fund.
