Theater Wing Fundraiser

General McLane’s band and performing arts program started with only a few performers and musicians, but it has grown into a highly-advanced arts program. And now, it has outgrown its space.

In conjunction with the 34th Annual Broadway Dinner, the General McLane Foundation kicked off a fundraiser to raise money for a new Theater Wing at General McLane High School.

“With 44% of our high school students participating in a performing ensemble, we are simply out of space,” said superintendent Richard Scaletta. “Additionally, our participation in music in the middle school has grown and the middle school is now producing larger stage productions. Performance and rehearsal space is being used for storage, and we need to accommodate the high number of students participating in our band and choir programs.”

For General McLane School District to be able to maintain a high-level of performance quality, an area for costuming, set design and construction, which does not interfere with day-to-day rehearsals, is needed. This proposed wing would be built across from the auditorium and into the courtyard. (Proposed pictures are below).

The preliminary estimated cost for this project, which will add 2,100 square feet, is at $623,000. The District cannot fund this project because current and future budget projections remain tight. The District must also continue to save for other capital projects such as the new roof and HVAC system that will soon be needed at other buildings.

This fundraiser is similar to the 2007 Turf Fundraiser Initiative, which raised more than $200,000 in private funding to install artificial turf at Linden Field. The funding also helped to upgrade the scoreboard and track and field facility.
