Gamut Theatre to Celebrate Grand Opening of Education Center
Monday August 6, 2018, Gamut Theatre Group will celebrate the Grand Opening of the recently renovated, 10,000 square foot Gamut Theatre Education Center. The center features the Alexander Grass Second Stage, two renovated classrooms, and technical teaching shops for students to learn about costume construction, scenery design, sound and lighting, and more. Its new four-stop elevator and outdoor access will make this space fully accessible and ADA-compliant. The new stage will be the permanent home for the Popcorn Hat Players Children's Theatre, as well as the Stage Door Series Ensemble and Gamut Theatre Academy.
The public is invited for the Grand Opening at 15 N. 4th Street in Downtown Harrisburg on Monday, August 6th from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Gamut will kick off the event at 11:00 with a ribbon cutting in front of the new ADA-accessible entrance to the Education Center located on Strawberry Street. The street will be closed to accommodate our guests and any media with equipment. Students from Gamut's education programs will be joined by Representative Patty Kim to cut the ribbon, officially opening the center to the public. Inside, there will be a short program on the Alexander Grass Second Stage, featuring Elizabeth Grass-Weese, a director of The Alexander Grass Foundation and Brad Winnick, Gamut's Board President. Following the presentation, the facility will be open for tours and there will be refreshments in the Capital Blue Cross Lobby.
