The new Visual and Performing Arts Center at The Sagemont School’s Upper School Campus is open and students couldn’t be more excited. The 10,000 square foot facility features a 150 seat Black Box Theater, two large art rooms and two soundproof music rooms. Dr. Brent Goldman, President of The Sagemont School, said, “The new Visual and Performing Arts Center is a transformational addition to our Upper School Campus. The hundreds of students interested in the arts at our school finally have a home of their own.”
|Theater instructor, Elizabeth Garrard, expressed that “having a theater venue on campus will give the students many more opportunities.” She continued to explain how the new theater allows for more performances without additional costs from venue rental. Additionally, Garrard mentioned, “Students will be able to explore opportunities in sound, lighting and scenic design as well as stagecraft. Students will also learn the daily operational needs of a theater including business, house and stage management, and publicity.”
A fundraising gala was set for Saturday November 15th from 7-9:30PM, showings, musical performances as well as character appearances from past productions such as Little Women, CATS and Aladdin. The event included food vendors, photo booths, popcorn and cappuccino.
