LA Children's Theatre Imagine Project Welcomes New Board Member
Imagine Project - LA's new and only Equity theatre dedicated entirely to programming for children - welcomes Spencer Kook to its Board of Directors.
Kook is a member of the Executive Committee and Managing Partner of the Downtown Los Angeles office of Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP. Kook also serves as a member of the firm's Diversity Committee, which is dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion within the firm, and its business and community relationships.
“I joined Imagine Project because, quite simply, I strongly support gender equity, diversity and inclusion in all facets and certainly, including the arts. I have an 11-year old daughter and I have seen first-hand the profound impact of exposure to creative self-expression and empowerment messaging. I support the world my daughter envisions and imagines - a world of inclusion and equity,” explained Kook.Imagine Project (imagineprojectca.com) is LA’s new and only Equity theatre dedicated entirely to programming for children. Los Angeles County is home to 2.3 million kids and had no professional union company committed to producing only theatre for young audiences prior to the founding of IP. Imagine Project is a California non-profit corporation and a member of TYA/USA. Imagine Project’s mission is to tell relevant stories that focus on gender equity and inclusion while spotlighting female heroes, as they dynamically engage with today’s youth, inspiring young citizens to face life with creativity, insight, empathy and courage.
The company's inaugural mainstage production of The Tale of Turandot is planned for the first half of 2018. The play is told by live actors and Bunraku-inspired puppets together with multi-media projections.
Imagine Project leadership includes Armina LaManna, Artistic Director, and Alex Zonin, cChairman of the Board.
