RT+ BOARD MEMBERS AND DUNGENESS SCHOOLHOUSE BOARD
On October 15th, Members of the Board of Readers Theatre Plus (RT+) were invited to attend The Dungeness Schoolhouse Board Meeting. Part of the reason for the invitation was to “present” a long-overdue “donation check” for $1,508.46. (The real check had already been delivered to MAC’s Executive Director in the summer!) The other reason for the invitation was to continue the clear lines of communication between the two organizations.
Every year, Readers Theatre Plus (RT+) shares the profits made on their Gilbert & Sullivan Fundraiser with The Peninsula Singers and The Dungeness Schoolhouse/MAC. In addition to this annual gift, in 2011, an entire RT+ production was presented to benefit The Schoolhouse. In total, over $10,750.00 has been donated to The Dungeness Schoolhouse/MAC from Readers Theatre Plus — and this is over and above the amount paid for rental for our performances! Both organizations were happy with the donation.
