WRWF Grants Winner: The Spot lights up fundraiser with season announcement – Comedies and musicals abound for local theater
On Saturday, July 6, theater lovers from across the area congregated at a private home for The Spot’s annual fundraiser and season announcement.
The artistic staff of this popular fringe theater in Ketchum addressed their patrons, associates, young company and well-wishers to announce the five-play lineup for their 2019-20 season.
Frequent Spot collaborator and patron Matt Gorby kicked off the evening’s proceedings, introducing The Spot’s leaders and legacy, concisely saying, “What these guys have done in this town in just five short years is nothing less than remarkable.”
Throughout the evening, Spot co-founders Yanna Lantz and Brett Moellenberg elaborated upon Gorby’s point, relating the story of The Spot’s origins, its artistic mission and how important sponsorship is to the continuation of the nonprofit theater’s productions.
