Lighting the way for Creativity!
We put on 180 student performances a year, with hundreds of young people ages 5-18 appearing on stage or behind the scenes of these productions. But spotlighting all that burgeoning talent is tough when you’re operating a broken and outdated lighting system.
Our project on power2give.org needs support from parents, alumni, and supporters to guarantee that we can update our lighting systems for our season of plays and students in the new stagecraft program.
Matching funds are available for a limited time only!
Walden Theatre / Blue Apple Players is looking to remedy this with new lights, dimmer packs, and wiring in order to raise the production quality of our shows and to raise the educational opportunities for students enrolled in our Stagecraft classes. This course in technical theatre is an important complement to the intensive acting training that students get in the Conservatory Program, and this is the only such program for young people in the area that offers instruction in directing, stage management, costuming, set design & construction, and sound & lighting design.
Stagecraft students contribute to the design and execution of our shows, but our current system is holding them back. Replacing obsolete systems provides quality skill building that benefits them and all the collaborative young people involved in our student productions.
Help us reach our goal and give these talented students the tools to work more creatively and efficiently.
Every dollar given to support this project will be matched 50% by sponsors on the site. So If you contribute $100, the project will receive $150 from power2give.org. This is a great way to stretch your dollar–and ours–to better serve the young people involved in our productions, both on stage and behind the scenes.
