lights presented

Jan Weekes of the Duvall Foundation for the Arts and Carolyn Butler of the Duvall Arts Commission present two stage lighting instruments to Cedarcrest High School drama student Brent Workman who accepts them on behalf of the school.

   DUVALL--On Jan. 21, the Duvall Foundation for the Arts and the Duvall Arts Commission donated two state-of-the-art stage lighting instruments to the Cedarcrest High School drama department.

   This donation was made possible by the success of two performances sponsored by the local arts organizations with the help of the King County Arts Commission. Last fall, Spectrum Dance Theater and UMO Ensemble played here to enthusiastic audiences as part of the King County Performance Network. Part of the profits from those shows was used to purchase the new lights for the theater.

   This spring, the Foundation and the Commission will sponsor a series of family programs. Beginning in March, "Arts Onstage" will showcase music, dance, and children's theater in a series to be presented at Cedarcrest. Complete information on these shows is available by calling 788-9844.

   The Duvall Arts Commission and the Duvall Foundation for the Arts are partners in bringing the full spectrum of the arts to Duvall and the greater community of the Snoqualmie Valley. Anyone interested in joining this effort can call 788-9844 for information.
