Help Us Upgrade Our Theater Lighting System
We need help raising funds to update our theater lighting system. Our current system is very outdated and parts are no longer manufactured for the system. We are fundraising to upgrade to digital technology, which allows for more precise control of the lighting and the ability to add special effects. We have already raised 2/3rds of the funds needed. We need to raise another $10K in order to move forward with the upgrade. We really need to have the new lighting in place for our summer musical.
As with most theaters, ticket sales cover only a portion of our costs, and our productions would not be possible without additional financial contributions from community members who value the arts. Please help keep the mission of Schoolhouse alive by becoming a member today by making a tax-deductible membership donation.
The Daytime Players, originally organized by seniors for seniors, are actors of all ages.
