Third Avenue Playhouse (TAP) was awarded a grant of $3,250 from the Green Bay Packers Foundation. The check was presented to TAP Board President Karl Wise and TAP Board Secretary Alan Kopischke at a luncheon on Dec. 5 at the Lambeau Field Atrium in Green Bay.
The Green Bay Packers Foundation has been giving back to Wisconsin’s communities since it was established in 1986 “as a vehicle to assure continued contributions to charity.” It is a component of Green Bay Packers Give Back, the all-encompassing community outreach initiative. The grant money from the foundation will help fund two of TAP’s 2019 educational programs: The Right To Live Workshop and its Theatre Bootcamp.
The Right To Live Workshop is a theater piece inspired by narratives of refugee populations from around the world that combines music, dance and drama. It will begin mid-January and continue through February, with a public presentation scheduled for March 1-3. Participation is open to all Door County middle and high school students and adults. Sign-up is required by Jan. 18.
TAP’s Theatre Bootcamp is a series of classes in acting, musical theater, stage combat and improvisation that is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2019.
