STAGEright Theatre Programs
STAGEright offers a full season of shows ranging from original cult musicals to small quirky ensemble pieces and live radio dramas. Every production is given a fresh voice and new approach through local actors, directors and designers. We believe there is a lot of talent in Seattle and we strive to utilize every bit of it through our productions. Our goal is to produce 4 full productions each year with a possible fifth production as the wild card slot.
STAGEright has already completed 3 successful trivia night events and raised close to $1,000 total. We are planning to implement 2 of these events a month as they are easy to put together and we have a permanent place to hold them. Within this last year we have completed a successful Kickstarter campaign in which we raised $2,220 in 3 weeks. During the GiveBig campaign last year we were able to raise $700 in a single day for our company. So far in 2012 we've completed an email donation event called, "Give $20.12 in 2012 where we raised $531.08.
Creative Opportunities for Up and Coming Artists
One of our main goals is to offer local actors, directors and designers the opportunity to showcase their work. In a thriving artistic community like Seattle in which there are so many, more often than not artists struggle to get recognized. STAGEright wants to be a part of that recognition by bringing in outside artists who have a strong, passionate and realistic production they want to see come alive. Supporting the art that supports us, is what STAGEright is all about!
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
In the summer of 2010 STAGEright produced an original West Coast premiere musical entitled; BJ: A Musical Romp. It was selected as part of Bumbershoot-Seattle's Music and Arts Festival and due to its' overwhelming popularity among theatre-goers spurred an original cast recording.
The most current need STAGEright has is acquiring a permanent theatrical venue. Our company wants to establish a neighborhood theatre in Greenwood as all of our staff members reside there. Having an actual physical space will solidify our organization as a permanent fixture within the community, thereby allowing STAGEright more freedom and flexibility to choose the types of shows we want to produce. Having a place to hang our hats would also help grow and root our audience base. Not having to compete with other fringe theatres for space and parking can only benefit our group.
