Axelrod Performing Arts Center wrote -We are so grateful for our audience members, our fans and our supporters. We thank you so much for being an Axelrod PAC friend! We’re excited to announce our newest fundraising campaign. The goal of this campaign is to raise at least $10,000 to purchase and install updated, more efficient lighting in the theatre. Stage lighting is a crucial element of theatrical production work. The Axelrod PAC is utilizing equipment over 10 years old. The lighting control board had to be recently repaired and the fixtures utilized for Axelrod productions are not adequate for the scope of work required. Furthermore, the current fixtures are energy inefficient and unreliable due to their age. The newest fixtures are LED and a new lighting board will be required to utilize these fixtures. Each year the rental of additional lighting equipment and repairs costs the Axelrod PAC $10-15,000. Annual savings in rentals, enhanced lighting for Axelrod productions, reduced energy costs, and reliable equipment would significantly benefit our non-profit arts organization.
