Youthful performers act out

Try to raise money for theater



Joining the theater’s Young Performers Acting Group in raising money for the theater is Rufus Huff, a regional rock band.

Band members heard theater officials’ cry for help and agreed to pitch in by playing a benefit concert.

“Most of us have been fans of the theatre since the ’70s, plus the Rufus Huff CD will be released April 14. Besides a benefit, it’ll also be a CD release for this area,” said band member Greg Martin. “I’m not sure how much we’ll raise, but every little bit helps.”

The benefit concert is set for April 21.

A group of Allen County English teachers are planning to make a donation on their own as a way of giving back because the theater has helped them so much with meeting core content requirements.

Heading up the effort is Vicki Cooper, who teaches drama at Allen County-Scottsville High School and is a huge supporter of the theater.

“I’m going to put in as much as I can and the other teachers are too. It’s sort of a love offering so to speak,” she said.

Cooper is also working on a project involving several students, but did not want to reveal what it was until after it had been approved by school district officials.

Brock is planning to speak to legislators about the theater qualifying for federal stimulus funding through the National Endowment of the Arts.

“It might really supplement the effort of this appeal to get us where we need to be,” he said.
