ACT Wish List

As a small theater, we have a number of items we would love to have, but just
can’t afford them on our tight budget.  Some of our items are really very small
and inexpensive and we’ve run out or no one has thought to find them yet, but
every now and then someone says, gosh, I wish we had…  If you have the
finances to help our theater grow, we will greatly appreciate your financial
donations. Or if you have a few small things sitting around the house and want
to help out in little ways, we will be equally appreciative of your making our jobs
just a little easier.

New backstage curtains (for Forest Park)     $15,000
To make the stage a Forest Park fully functional we would love to add curtains and
a proscenium. This will take a large capital investment.

New grand drape (main traveler curtain)      $3,000.00
This would improve our ability to produce mainstage shows at Forest Park.

State of the art Dimmer Board and Dimmers           $2,000.00
Upgrade of our current equipment from the old dimmers to the new PBX equipment
that will work with LED lighting equipment.

Cables, outlets and patch panel        $2,000.00
Currently we must run long extension cords to each light, taping down the cords
so our audience members don’t trip over them.  We have a proposal to run
permanent outlets along the beams in the theatre so the lights could be mounted
near the outlets, eliminating all the cords taped to the floor. The outlets in turn
would be connected to a patch panel backstage so the dimmers could be able to
control the individual lights.

Lighting instruments        $2,400.00
We currently have 14 lighting instruments.  These have been donated to us by
Lynn Wilson of Washburn University and Grace Point Church.  This limits what
we can do technically.  We would like to purchase additional instruments to
make visibility on stage brighter and easier to see and control.  New LED lighting
instruments would also be more efficient and easier to operate by volunteers.  

Sound Equipment        $7,000.00  <---Wish Fulfilled!
Thanks in part to a grant from ArtsConnect of Topeka, we were able to purchase
part of the equipment we need. More will be added as we receive further funding.
