Why is this Campaign Important?
The funds raised will be used to:
- Improve efficiency and dramatically reduce energy use and costs (by more than 70%)
- Improve theatre accessibility and safety for our patrons with audience lighting improvements
- Enable us to Meet the creative demands of today’s artists with upgraded stage lighting
Specifically, the Spruce Peak Arts Theatrical Lighting and Efficiency Improvements Project will improve audience experience with better lighting quality throughout their time in the theatre, respond to artist and technical staff demand for increased creative flexibility, and will significantly decrease energy utilization saving the performing arts center an estimated $10,000+ per year. The proposed replacement system for house lights includes professional-grade, high-output, LED-native fixtures capable of meeting illumination standards for seating and safe egress, and producing flicker-free dimming. The new, color-changing over-stage wash and cyc lighting LED fixtures will increase creative flexibility, reduce energy consumption by 74% on a per-fixture basis, eliminate the need to purchase and replace light bulbs and color media, and reduce labor costs in doing so. The new lighting console will provide the flexibility touring performers require.
The total project cost of $82,290 will be supported by the Spruce Peak Arts Board of Directors and, with your help, the money raised during this campaign.
