Kingman Center for the Arts is excited to announce we have a new matching grant for 2021. Angle Homes has generously offered to match all donations made to the Beale Street Theater renovation project, dollar for dollar, up to $100,000! This offer is good through the end of 2021.
To celebrate this news, we are holding a digital fundraiser during the month of May. We will be showcasing many of the talented artists in our community through several videos that will debut at 7:00pm on each Thursday during the month of May on our bealestreettheater.com website and on Facebook. In conjunction with these videos, we will have a silent auction, open to the public to bid on starting May 6th. The auction will be on display at the ArtHub during open hours, Tues-Thurs 11-5pm and Fri-Sat 11-6pm and features many great prizes. The auction ends on May 27th at 6pm.
On Thursday, May 27th, we will culminate our fundraiser with a Facebook live event, featuring more performers and announcement of the winners of the silent auction along with a huge thank you to all of our sponsors and donors that have participated in the fundraiser.
Help us reach this goal by making a donation on our website, https://bealestreettheater.com/donate.
At the end of April, we will have our finished design plans that will show all of you what our renovation plans are for the Beale Street Theater. Money earned from the last matching grant in 2019 went to pay for these plans, along with construction drawings for the building. With this new grant, we will work towards getting the building occupiable, allowing us to use the space for rehearsals and small events. With the help of our community partners, we will then move to add more functionality to space until we have a fully functional performing arts center for the Kingman community to use!
When finished, the theater will provide live theater productions, live music concerts, classic cinema and so much more. We appreciate all of your support in helping this vision become a reality.
