It's Time to Raise the Curtain on Blauvelt Theatre

Michael Gary, Head of School

In the beginning of the year, I asked many of you about our physical space and what you'd like to see updated and transformed. I heard you loud and clear: the theater. As I announced a few weeks ago, at the end of the school year Friends Select is taking the lead to renovate the theater, trusting you will follow.

I'd like to take this opportunity now to update you on a few elements of the Blauvelt Theatre renovation project.

Technical Capabilities
Thank you to those who came out to support the PA Auction on Friday. It was a wonderful night and I'm happy to announce that parents came together to raise over $15,000 for the Blauvelt Theatre renovation project and its video recording and live stream capabilities.

Project Timeline
We are on schedule to begin construction in June. A group of us on the project committee met with outside experts to gain insight and guidance in building a new theater. Read more about their recent visit.

New Seating
The school is in the process of selecting one of three theater chairs. When you come back from spring break, we invite you to sample 3 different seats that will be displayed in the front lobby. Once a decision is made, you will have the opportunity to buy a chair and name it in honor of a favorite former teacher, classmate, class year, Friends Select memory, or a even a special quote or saying. Stay tuned for more information.

Friends Select has taken the lead on a project that is long overdue but we still need your support. It's time to raise the curtain on Blauvelt Theatre. Show your excitement and make a gift today.
