On Friday, March 3, the theater project architect, Atkin Olshin Schade Architects, and project manager, Wolfe Scott Associates, met with members of the Friends Select community and local theater design experts for feedback and input on the upcoming theater renovation.
Our students work hard. In every subject, they strive for greatness. They research and study and experiment and write and re-write. They achieve amazing things. To keep succeeding, they need your support.
Many alumni/ae, families and friends have made contributions to the Friends Select Fund, a philanthropic tradition. These gifts from members of the Friends Select family weave a strong fabric of financial support-- providing the school's leadership with the financial flexibility to respond to emerging needs.
Announcing the Blauvelt Theatre Renovation Project
Friends Select School is embarking on a full renovation project of the Blauvelt Theatre. This space is a cornerstone of the school, and is heavily used by all members of the community. One of the only spaces in the building that can accommodate a large group of people, the Blauvelt Theatre hosts events such as student performances and plays, alumni/ae awards ceremonies, outside speakers and faculty professional development activities.
Renovations will include new seating and improved sight lines and balcony views; a refurbished, larger stage area; and an updated and advanced sound and lighting system. Support of the Blauvelt Theatre renovation project will have an incredible impact on the life of the school and advance Friends Select School to its greatest potential.
For more information on the project, including ways to give and naming opportunities, contact Christine Jefferson, Director of Development and Alumni/ae Relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215.561.5900, ext. 141.
