The Belasco Theater Project: Help Complete a Danville Performing Arts Center

This petition had 1,207 supporters

We are the I Can Do That Theatre Company in Danville, a non-profit youth musical theatre company of 100+ students. The founders Shayna and Jarusha started the company two years ago at the passing of their beloved mentor and friend Ed Belasco.

Our dream and goal is to finish an abandoned 20 year old theater in-progress that was originally started for Ed Belasco, and we recently discovered. This facility is at 500 La Gonda Way in Danville, only two miles from our current studio.

At I Can Do That Theatre Company, we foster student creativity, teamwork, and confidence in a safe and loving environment.  This new facility would allow us to reach even more students with this goal, as well as expand into one of our other goals in providing workshops of technical theatre aspects.  

Our current rehearsal space can only hold 30 people maximum when many of our shows have companies of 50 students or more.  There is also noise from the gym above us.  To add to this, our current performance venue now lacks the space and amenities for our increasingly larger audiences and productions; it seats 245 people.

This new theater however, has Greek rotunda-style seating for a warmer community atmosphere, as well as larger stage and backstage space for our actors.  Seating 300, this discovery is exactly what we need for our growing family.

While we do not yet have exact budgets or a timeline (we plan to have this accomplished as soon as possible), we greatly need the support of the East Bay Community.  With this new facility, we can continue to give back to an area that has been incredibly supportive of the performing arts and youth theatre in the past. 

What we need from you are any shares, news coverage, and power of word of mouth as possible.  We also need anyone that has financial/management experience or advice to help us along in this project. Please sign and share on your social media, and visit our website for more information.

We thank you in advance for all of the support and we will make this project happen!
