BENEFITING: DARE TO DREAM THEATRE INC
Dare to Dream Theatre is blessed to have our own theatre space on loan from Joseph Thuermer, board president. This space is an amazing intimate 190 seat theatre perfect for our youth and family theatre productions. Housed in a 116 year old church building, this space has seen a magical transformation over the past 8 years. The pews have been replaced with a gently sloping audience seating riser and padded theatre seats. 19 foot tall Burgundy Velvet drapes now hang over the 100 year old stained glass windows allowing the theatrical lighting grid to do it's job lighting the stage.
Our Next project is the stage and technical theater booth. We plan to remove the orange carpet and replace the boards underneathe it. If enough money is raised, we will inset a turntable on the stage as well. Further We plan to install 3 pulley curtains to hang backdrops, and install one more removable row of theatre seats beneathe the lighting grid. Up in the balcony, the booth will get a permanant upgrade. And finally, we plan to purchase 2 2500 BTU window units to cool the upper level with air conditioning.
Meanwhile, the lower level facelift continues with the help of our amazing volunteers:
Walls will be resurfaced and repainted, storage space will be revised, and dressing rooms will be divided to include smaller private changing spaces.
Will you help us continue our upgrades?
